If ya have some dry chain lube laying around, use what ya got.
So the dry lube can go in the keyhole?

Phosphoric acid is part of the acid found in soft drinks. The Mythbusters tried to use it to clean rust, and called it "Busted" but this is one that I disagree with. If you do try it, I strongly recommend you flush with water immediately afterwards, then re-lube.
