Hi, and a Lube Question [Mar. 17th, 2007|12:15 am]

Hello all,

I've been cubing since near the beginning of last month. After a few days with Petrus, I switched over to a layer-by-layer method. A couple later, I switched again to Fridrich for F2L. A week or two ago, I switched over to 3-look LL (well, I'm in the process of switching over- I only know about half the PLL). My PB is 38 seconds.

Anyway, my cube is an unlubed store-bought one. I went to the local hardware store, but the silicone sprays they had were oil-based; I didn't want to risk it. I went to Home Depot and all they had was WD-40 and other oil-based lubes.

My question is: does anyone know of a good, cheap lube that I can buy online? What about one that most, if not all stores have?

Thanks.

couple weeks* in the first paragraph.

When I say all stores, I mean all hardware stores or similar stores; in short, one that I could easily find nearby.

hmm noticed this oold post, but i'll give my 2cents worth.

IMO, anything that says SILICONE spray is good enough to use as a lubricant. DON'T use WD-40. It's horrible.

Before you lubricate, clean the inside of all dust or else it'll just gunk up when you apply lube.

BTW 38 seconds without lube is pretty awesome.
