Chemically speaking, baby oil probably is not good for the black tank. It floats on top and spreads thin. This oil barrier keeps the air from the vent pipe away from the black water. The beneficial and less stinky aerobic bacteria in your tank dies. Anaerobic bacteria thrives and is more stinky. I don't think the oil ever gets a chance to lube the valve seals. Silicone grease is a better choice for lubricating slide valve seals, anyway.

We use pharmacy grade mineral oil mixed with vinegar to polish our woodwork. Works great and no smell.

Baby oil & Skin-so-soft both have mineral oil bases. The only difference is fragrance and viscosity. (Check the labels)
Food grade mineral oil can be bought at any drug store or WallyWorld and is great for rubbing down wooden butcher blocks once or twice a year.

I had a wart problem on my hand when I was in the ninth grade...the doctor gave a me a small vile of mineral oil to carry in my pocket, and he said to keep them (the warts) constantly covered...which I did and very soon they went away. Seems like they have to have air to live, and the oil cuts off that supply.
I have used Baby Oil to get paint off of my arms and it really does work.

No baby oil.

Hi, it's been a really long time since I had a baby in my house. [mine] But one of my favorites is Mayonnaise. My all time favorite though is lighter fluid. I have a speaker system for my computer that was making noise while adjusting the volume. I took it apart and sprayed it with contact cleaner, about three times, and it still acted up. I squirted lighter fluid into it once and no more problems.

An especially effective problem solver when followed by a match!
