And I agree, to a point. Many times and for many products I wished there were alternative packaging options to them. Like, for example, a bottle with a small brush, which frequently would make the application both more controlled and economical.

For the application in question I also prefer the dry lubricant.

What dry lubricant? Do you have a name for it? I don't like using all the aerosol either ... and I wanted to make sure it didn't have some other negative trait I'm not aware of.

Teflon based spray lubricant is something I just have never used

I'm assuming you mean the stuff in the tubes? It will also eventually pull away from whatever it is supposed to be sealing.

I use CRC Dry PTFE Lube http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...WjBFUw&cad=rja but I believe the same product is marketed under many names. Look around what is available in your area. If it specifies 'dry' and PTFE (Teflon) based it should be OK.
