If it isn't apparent enough in my previous threads, I'm dirt poor, mostly because I'm a college student. So I'm always looking for ways to save money.
I have a question about lubricants mainly just chain lubes. Can you use cooking oil to lube the chains? A guy I know told me about this, but I'm not sure if it'll work or not. I think it might attract more dirt, clog up the chain, and cause more resistance.
which leads to my next question. Is there a cheap way to clean a chain? I'm thinking I could dump the chain in a 2 liter bottle of water, put some detergent or some sort of base solution in there, and shake the hell out of it.
I find it necessary for me to cut as much cost as possible. So don't judge me.
