I see... I can't buy anything, no silicone, but if I had the permission I would buy silicone spray, but it's currently O.K. , my friend lubed it for me.

i tried vaseline, and the result was a sticky cube. I heard that jig-a-loo is really good so i advise using it

Make sure to wipe off the vaseline, otherwise in a few weeks your cube won't be so good.

OK I will make sure I do that. I might try putting silicone spray on it instead. What do you know about graphite on rubiks cubes?

It'll probably make the cube look messy. I'm not sure if it's good to use on a cube or not. You might need to use a huge quantity of it.

OK I will just try silicon spray. On my next cube I will try jigaloo to see the difference.

Jigaloo IS a silicone spray, isn't it? If you want to compare silicone lubricant to non-silicone then I suggest that you get something like lubix to compare with.

I just use jigaloo. I'm not much of a cuber anymore so I don't really care.

On Jig-A-Loo's website, it states this.
"It's a dry silicone-based lubricant that, unlike any other lubricant, contains no oil, grease, wax, petroleum distillates or detergent, so it doesn't stain or stink."

Also, on Lubix's website, it states this.
"Lubix is an odorless, colorless, high viscosity pure silicone fluid for decreasing friction on all moving parts of puzzle cubes such as a standard 3x3x3 cube."
