    I've probably saved thousands of lives by steering them away from toxic materials and solvents. Darn near got fired for it a few times - all that stuff was serious money at one time, and the ownership didn't like lost sales - pentachlorophenol, creosote, 1:1:1, lacquer solvent, toluene, benzene, lead paint, even asbestos board. Now Round Up is in the crosshairs, and should be. All of this stuff was once brazenly marketed as "harmless". So, if someone wants to make a smart-ass remark that death follows me, that's fine, because I'd sure to prefer to be ahead of it in the race, rather than have it prematurely catch up! The last incident before I retired was when I refused to sell someone a carbide circular saw blade rated at 4500RPM when I knew he intended to put it on a grinder which ran 11,000RPM to make a poor man's toeplate saw. He cussed me out, told me that's what everyone does, and said he'd never shop there again. I said, Fine, I'd far rather see you walk out of here forever than walk back in with a lawyer and missing a hand or eye. The very next month six workers in a SF boatyard got maimed doing that very thing.
    I'd seen it all already.

    This is perhaps another option Spray Dry Graphite don't breathe it either.

    I tested both years ago as our company made both.
    Both will wear off producing dust.
    An actual sticky grease may be better.
    Is that on sold a lot for bikes? I used that little for enlarger chassis and rather often at home for bike fork and suspension.
    After your note got worried as children might be around during bikes cleaning.

    I’m wondering if a light application of petroleum jelly might work, providing it being acid free?

    Thatís not grease.

    I have a small tub or red bearing grease.

    It would work.

    Wipe on a light amount of lithium grease. Not the cheap auto store type. I use something else, but it's harder to get. As usual, consult the tech specifications in something like the McMaster site for appropriate usages.
