Haha when i started cubing i didnt know how much vaseline i was meant to put in it. In the end i submerged the whole thing in vaseline. everytime i turned it vaseline oozed out. I cleaned it out in the end haha.
my wife and i both have a cube i have been working with mine for a while and then i vasalined it. her's is fairly new and i did the same, but her's is still really stiff. Then her little brother bought one. his was alot smoother than hers out of the box. has this ever happened to anyone.
