Some years ago, I lubed a boy's bicycle chain with the cheap silicone lube
from Walmart. Popular Mechancis brand, in the black can. Shortly after that,
the boy and his family went home out of state. A couple days later, I heard
from his Aunt Agnes (who lives near me), the bike chain locked up. From what
I can guess, the walmart house brand is all solvent, and not much lube. By
that time, the bike was 200 miles away, and I couldn't do anything for him.
We were all very sad.
Snap brand silicone from Advance Auto is more pricey, but works well for me.

Or, go to Walmart and buy some silicone lube in a spray can. It's
made for auto and home use, and it stays on the item and is thin.
