It was common practice to use "nose grease" to lube the brake bands in a Revox at a studio in the 70s. they'd start to squeak, one application lasted about a week.

Rick Dale demonstrated by wiping his finger on his forehead and erasing grease pencil marking from a piece of painted metal. It came off without any smearing. Would there be a product comparable to "skin oil"? Will it work on a disc? Soapy water will create a greasy mess. Solvents will probably damage the disc.
