WD40

I know that WD40 is a great favourite amongst cruisers as a "cure all" product.
BUT
You should know that WD40 is hydrophilic...ie, it absorbs water
So while it may work and solve your immediate problem, long term it is a problem in itself as the "thing" that you cleaned and lubricated with WD40 will eventually rust as the WD40 absorbs water.

Better to use a hydrophobic (ie repels water) lubricant like INOX which doesn't dry out and is unaffected by damp environments.
