Lubricant Help


Jan 5, 2009
NZ, but in Germany at the moment
Hey everyone, thanks for helping:

I recently bought Universal Silicon-Oil W5 (Carcare) and used it on my old 3x3x3 and it worked great, but the cube was already really munted to start with so I wasn't sure how much damamge it actually did.

Today I got my new cubes (3x3x3 CSC, ES 4x4x4 and ES 5x5x5) from PUZL.co.uk and was wondering about lube and if anyone knew how destructive W5 is and if it is safe to use on my new cubes.

And also: How to reduce tension on a 4x4x4 as it has no centre caps. :(
