Shred Wax Paper to Lubricate Shredder

Do you use a paper shredder for disposing of sensitive documents like I do? After a while, the blades need a little lubrication; seeing as how I won't buy an expensive little tube of lubricant, I just do this: Run a piece of waxed paper through the shredder to make it work like new again!

Thanks so much! I didn't want to buy the oil either.
