Where do you pry apart on a 2x2 cube (if you can safely)?

first time yes but every time you take it apart it becomes looser. I don't recomend doing often btw.

I tried various lubes when they first came out, ie back in the early 80's, but I recall I ultimately settled for talc - less messy and nicer smelling (even for someone that loves the smell of oil).

Would Graphite spray work just as well?
Graphite spray is the stuff used to lubricate chain drives, like a bicycle.

I just found a bottle of LPD-9 for bicycles. I doubt it, but would it work?

Probably not. But if you don't have petroleum jelly or crc then try it.

can't you just pry up a corner if you're using a spray can?
