The first time I saw the cork grease in my son's drawer, I thought it was a lip balm. There were several sticks so I thought of asking one from him. Oh, he was laughing at me when I told him about it. It wasn't a lip balm and he uses it to protect his micro corks. He was able to save on cork grease when he visited his favorite music store last week. Silly me, I thought Micro Cork Grease is a brand of lip balm. Ha-ha.
