FWIW, I was at Lowes a while back, and noticed a PTFE base oil lubricant on the check out isle. I can't remember the brand, but it was a well known name. It was reasonably priced at less than $5.
Yes, yes, I'm aware of the nuance. When was the last time you've heard a casual player refer to an "aramid" string, though?
It's sort of like Kleenex vs facial tissue. Good tip on the Lowe's PTFE, I may have to check that out. I rarely find myself in a Lowe's though.. apartment dwelling isn't as motivating when it comes to hardware stores
