Elliptical is Squeaking

I have an elliptical that is starting to squeak like crazy whenever I'm on it. Normally I would spray some WD40 on it but I'm all out. So I figured there's got to be something else around the house I can use. Any suggestions?

Take a q-tip and apply some Vaseline to the spot; if you can find some Slick 50 lubricant in Auto Parts[or similar] it should last longer than the WD-40.

Try Pam cooking spray, I've used it for squeaky door hinges!

WD 40 attracts dust, not a good thing. Silicone spray would be better if you have any, or Vaseline.

Other possiblities: a light oil (like 3-in-1 oil), silicone spray, graphite, baby oil, or even cooking spray in a pinch.

I tried the Pam cooking spray and it worked immediately! Thanks! Now I can exercise in peace and quiet. :)
