I like the moose juice. I was down at Moose Country waterski camp and Fred sold me a big jug of it for twenty bucks. You can get it in 1 liter spray bottles. That should last a season

I use dilooted (50/50) dollar-store shampoo and water in a spray bottle. Also - I use the dollar-store dishwashing liquid dilooted 30(soap)/70 (water) in a spray bottle. I did the dishwashing soap for ~20 years & never had a binding give out or complain yet.

Women's shave gel, target brand...$1. Not as slippery as shampoo or dish soap. It dissipates pretty much instantly when you get in the water.

I want to make sure my kids, and my kids, kids for that matter enjoy the lake in the same conidition I do. Most if not all of the specific binding lubes are more enviromentally friendly than any soap, shave cream, or shampoo... I use "Newt Juice", it's a little bit more $$ than your average house hold substitues but, a MC is little bit more than your average boat too..
