What kind of lubricant spray should I use?

SILICONE

Most silicone sprays contain only about 1.5% silicone lubricant. The benefit of silicone spray is that it helps repel water and performs well in extreme temperatures.

DRY LUBRICANTS

Dry spray lubricants, most commonly graphite, don’t spray on completely dry, but their solvents evaporate rapidly, leaving behind a dry film. Dry lubricants are good for interior hinges, interior locks, drawer slides, and toolbox drawers. Just be sure to wipe off or even buff off the excess.

OIL

Often called penetrating oil, most oil spray lubricants are made from crude oil, but some are made from vegetable oil. Their low surface tension makes them best for penetrating deep into mechanisms and into the threads of rusted bolts and nuts.
