I've had some luck with WD-40. I pre-treat the whole thing the night before and again the day of. So far so good. I think most of what's been covered would work better, but if you have some WD-40 handy, you could try that first before going out and buying some "stuff".

Your probably right. I just want all my ducks in a row before I started the project.

The can is only $8.50 so if it works as good as they say, it would be worth it.

But I didn't know I couldn't drink it before I ordered it

I think I'll spray some on my cat first to see how he reacts

Use it to scent your plastic worms?

Umm, you can try something I really like, called Howe's oil. As far as I know, it is available online, a half gallon is around $25.00, and should last you for years. I use it on all sticky or rusted parts (and I get a lot of them).
My breakage rate using this stuff is around 10%, versus around 40% using most other penetrating oils. Oh, and it has a pleasant scent, so maybe you could also use it as a deodorizer...
Oh, yeah, here is their website:

You can get a spray can from your local Truck stop, if you don't want the giant ecenomy size.
