Recently, I've been thinking the 50k is too slow for my liking and want the cube a little bit fast, should I get 30k or 10k. People have been saying 50k makes the cube fast but sadly, it makes it slower. Also does 30k even make the cube fast or just smoother?

Most of the videos I've found to disassemble a 2x2 are either using a non-rubik's brand or using a V2. Mine has become sticky and hard to turn and I'd like to lube it, but I can't figure out how to get it apart to use silicone spray, or any other means, to lube it. I would appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Just throw it away and buy any other 2x2

Like others have said, any other 2x2 is better and probably cheaper, but if you're desperate, you can just pull the pieces apart (without taking them out) and apply the appropriate amount of lube on the inside.

Safe? Yeah, sure, it isn't caustic or anything, but I wouldn't put it in my cubes.
That lubricant is mostly just cooking oil, which is a fat. The shampoo is basically just being used as a surfactant to make the water runnier and spread more thoroughly. The mouthwash is being used to color it, I guess? He said it had no effect, which is false, but that leaves only the one option...
The shampoo and mouthwash will leave behind fragrances, flavorants, oils, etc. that will build up as gunk over time, while the cooking oil will likely break down and congeal. It's not really gonna ruin your cube, and it may actually work pretty well for a while, but it'll make your cube a sticky and gross mess that you'll have to clean up regularly.
Though I'm curious if @4Chan thinks any different. I've wondered about this sort of stuff for a while.
