I just figured I'd create this thread because I think the "One answer question thread" is over loaded with questions in every subject and this thread might help organize everything a little better. Since many people have questions pertaining to "what cube should I get?" or "What cube is better A or B" I figured I could organize all of these countless threads into one big thread. If you have any question on the subject of "what cube is better" or "what silicone should I get" etc. Ask here in this thread. I also searched around and I don't see a thread like this already in existence :eek:

Well, I think I could make good use of this thread..

I need a lube, but can't find CRC.. I found Svitol Tecknik Silikon.. is it good? I read it is for plastics, and so it shouldn't melt my cubes..

I believe whatever silicone you use it should be fine as long as it doesn't contain any petroleum as this is what melts your cube. Silicone is made to make things loose and is quite frequently used in door locks. I wouldn't trust the label, just read the ingredients and make sure it doesn't have any petroleum in it. If you don't have access to the ingredients research online for information. I have not used that type of silicone, but it all works the same way. You can also always order silicone online if you want CRC which is what I use.

Unfortunately, this thread does already exist here. However, in your defence, it's been dead for a couple of weeks and it took me ages to find! Sorry.

So what should I do? I don't want to rip off an existing thread. Or should I just leave the thread since the old ones been dead?
