This (DuPont Teflon Silicone Lubricant) was the second thing I tried after CubeLube, and it didn't seem to work very well for me - not nearly as good as CubeLube. I've since tried CRC heavy duty silicone (like everyone else), and I can see why people like it so much. The only problem with it is that I'm convinced CRC eats your cube, although apparently in a way that helps it. I notice that if I spray CRC on a paper towel and then wipe the cubies with it, the paper towel turns black (even if the cubies were clean to begin with) and the cubies seem somewhat discolored, like some of them have melted off. Is that just me, or does everyone see that with CRC? Anyway, despite that, it's true that the cube turns wonderfully after using CRC, so it works.this new thing I found at my local Ace Hardware store:

"Teflon Silicone Lubricant"
Yes, I know about that. I was thinking about making a lubrication tutorial and tell most people to use silicone and cube lube, and the statistics of a survey I made. So according to this poll, 80%+ people use silicone.Aren't half of these poll choices bad choices for cube lube? Mineral oil and petroleum based lubes do bad things to cube plastic.
