Uses for dry lubricants
Penetrating spray lubricant is not always the best lubricant for everything around the house. Drawers, cabinets, locks and latches, windows, sliding and bifold doors, and other metal, wood and plastic surfaces inside the house all need lubricants that stay dry and clean.
Graphite (powder or spray), wax and silicone all dry quickly, so they don't attract dust, which can clog or gum up moving parts. Each of them solves unique lubricating problems better than any other lubricant and costs less than $5, making them well worth keeping in the shop next to the penetrating spray.
