One method is "White Lithium Grease" in a spray can (with plastic tube) you
find at auto part stores.

Good luck.  Out.

Hahaha, OHHHHHHH BOY...what a thread it was the last time we argued
about  that.  Let me be clear and succinct...

There are people who disagree with me and I fully respect  their
opinions and do not deny that they have had a different experience
than I, even though they mostly do not respect my opinion and attempt
to deny that I observed what I did when I tried the stuff.  My opinion
is that white lithium grease significantly increases the effort you
put in while skating.  I don't have scientific tests to prove it
(seriously, who does that anyway) but I tried white lithium grease
multiple times (trying varying amounts, etc.) and EVERY time I felt a
SIGNIFICANT increase in effort.  In my opinion it sucks ass, but as I
said, others have had good experiences with it.

Personally, I say if you're going to use grease, use green waterproof
bicycle bearing grease.  I have packed my bearings FULL of that stuff
and not felt any increase in effort (although it did squish out the
side a bit).  That green grease is good stuff, and it's what I
recommend to grease users. YMMV.
