    WD40 is not really suitable for the step. I would use spray grease as it will lubricate for longer. WD40 is not a good long term lubricant.

    Agree with comments on WD40

    As for bike chain lubricant there are several different types but the are often desgned not to drip....so I think they would be fine,You only need a little
    and wipe off any excess.

    As said WD40 first job is to displace water...not long term lube
    Bike chain lube should be fine.......Hello to everyone in the U.K. :shout:
