    First I wipe off all the old grease from the board with lighter fluid on a rag. Then I use a RUSH brand fiberglass eraser pen. Next I clean it again with 99% isopropyl alcohol. And finally I use a thin coat of Super Lube to make it step easily and to prevent the wiper blade from wearing a groove in the copper traces.

    Yup, that's the stuff.

    I also use just a tad bit on my finger and apply the thin coat of grease to the board.
