I find it in the Automotive section at my local Ace for use on car door hinges
and latches I assume.  Ace website says it is $1.99.

I've had a tube of white lithium grease in the shop for years and years now,
mostly to lubricate things I want the grease to stick to, as opposed to bearings
and such that get oil. Didn't know about the sticks, and will look for them next
time the local ACE hardware calls (which is at least weekly-;-)

It is not sticky and will not trap dust or other filings. Just rub the end along
the thread and any wear points.  It is essentially white lithium grease in a wax
binder.
