its been a year now and the wd40 ive [liberally] spayed into my lock
after prolonged rain [she lives in the open] from the first time wd40
solved a locked lock, has not 'gunked up' the lock, which now
works nicely.. that was an anti water solution..
vaseline is used by car owners whose door locks
have iced up, as a preventative to ice formation..
not suggesting wd40 [or vaseline] as alternatives
to graphite or anything else, as, lubricants..
if graphite works to remove water, or prevent ice formation,
then great, theres another handy new thing ive learned today
