We recommend using the Official Rubik’s Cube Lube, not just because it’s Rubik’s, but because we have searched high and low for the perfect formulation for lubricating the Rubik’s Speed Cube. Rubik’s Cube Lube will allow you to maximise the cubes potential and achieve record beating times.
This lubricant is part of the silicone family, so it won’t rot the plastic in the cube like some lubricants. Much like crude oil, from which Bitumen (the sticky tar that roads are made of) and Petroleum (that we put in our automobiles), silicone comes in many forms. Just as you wouldn’t want to make a road of gas or put tar in your gas tank, don’t put other lubricants in your cube. Rubik’s Cube Lube is the perfect viscosity to balance speed and longevity.
