I tell you what... if I was playing USTA or a tourney and inbetween sets I see my opponent applying or spraying something onto his string bed.... I think I'd notify an official for clarification. Just doesn't seem right, but I certainly don't know all the rules.
You can buy dry alcohol based lubricants on e Bay designed for the purpose. There was also an article (which the subjects of which wanted to part of) where it was stated that pros are using silicone spray on their stringbeds.
