    Ok like the title says I'd like to know what kind of household lube I could use that is safe for a vinyl PVC sled. I want to be able to go as fast as possible without harming the PVC with corrosive chemicals. I'm thinking something like a spray wax or spray soap. Ideas???

    Here is what it looks like

    Soap does ok, depending on the temp.
    The tubes are best on hard pack. I usually set up a bobsled style track through the woods in winter. Poured water on all the turns and basically had an ice track.
    I can't think of anything other than rub on wax or soap. That and a running start.
