    Default Binding Lube?

    What do you guys use for binding lube, if anything? My son and I were both have trouble sliding into our new boots and I bought a bottle of foot slick at about $9 a bottle. Would a cheap biodegradable soap do the same job? Never had to worry about it before, but I'm sure somebody else has.

    I have a bottom of "Slime" from our local board shop, but before I had that we just kept a bottle of Dawn Hand Soap in the boat. It worked about the same, but the slime feels like it rinses off cleaner once you are in vs staying slick

    I buy the cheapest dish soap from walmart. Works great.

    Don't use it much now that I have Hinge Tech bindings.

    I've got some Moose Juice and then have the binding lube that came with my "bucket of babes" but haven't tried that yet!

    I'm slimed here and I agree the dishsoap doesn't come off as well. I used to use a silicone spray with no issues.

    use the cheapest shave gel or foam you can find. It rinses away way faster and easier than soap. I have tried everything you can think of and shave gel is by far the best and most economical!

    With the Ronix bindings I don't need it, but still keep some Moose Juice around for the older style bindings.

    Bought a bottle of Moose Juice from an exhibitor at the Water Ski Worlds in Calgary last year. It is far superior than either of the two brands I'd purchased from the local dealer previously.

    Found myself without binding lube, so used suntan lotion that was in the glove compartment. Worked fine. Normally have a bottle of Slime. Both work about the same.
