They do, but not nearly as well as silicone, and it has other issues, too. You see, silicone puts a coating on the cube that creates less friction, allowing it to move better. Oil does the same thing at first. But as you might find out, it starts to get slower and slower. This happens because the oil desintegrates the plastic. So you will start to get little plastic peices that slow dow your coube.

Oil works in a cube. Sure it melts the insides, but it works.

Similarly, boiling water works for washing your hands as well. Sure, it takes the skin off but it works. :roll:
Please take off topic discussion off this forum. Thanks.

Does it has to be 100% silicone spray, or does other silicone sprays work fine as wel?
