    Yeah man. Of course that will be fine. I've done that before when I was younger because I had nothing else lol. Yeah, just put it on and roll your wheels and put more on. Do that for a few days in a row and your bearings will be spinning and spinning and spinning!

    Safe. It's oil, but may be thick.

    I would go for WD-40 or standard household oil. But it should be fine and much better than nothing.

      WD-40 has small particles in it and should never be used for bearings. It does the same thing water does, destroying them from the inside out, as its purpose is to scrape out a small layer while lubricating for hinges on doors and such.
