This is a thread to show the most used and effective lube for cubes

Maru lube
7.5/10
Really good for the cube, one drop makes it insane but the problem is it drys out after 50 solves. No harm is done to the cube.

Lubix
9/10
This is good to be put into the core and cube. It does not need to
Be relubed. Does not do any harm to the cube.

Jig a loo
7.25/10
Good because it is a dry lubricant. It does temporary melting to the cube which is good for
breaking in the cube. It can glue pieces together if not worked in enough.
Can be bought a walmart, homedepot, Rona

CRC
7.20/10
same as jigaloo but it is not a dry lubricant, so it needs to be relubed once in a while.
Was one of the most used lubes before lubix came out
Can be bought at walmart, homedepot etc

Shockoil 15 wt
6.5/10
Does not really add an change to the cube but makes it smoother.
Can be bought at hobby shops

Personally, I don't think Maru lube deserves an 8.7...considering the ratings you gave to the other lubricants.

Another good lube for breaking in cubes is BSB Quiklube. It's meant for bearing for things like longboard wheels, but it worked great on my storebought a year ago. The problem is it smells. And obviously, it's not as good as lubix. but my storebought is wayy better than my C4U DIY
