It made my bearings free-spin a lot faster and quieter than any other substance I've used (more crud evident on the newspaper I use to tap the bearings on too).

I also got a can of ptfe-based lube and will let you know how that works after I've skated the bearings

I guess the guys recommending Isopropyl alcohol were right
What is the brand name of this miracle cleaner ?
