Alternatively, orthopaedic felt works quite well - the type used to 
line finger splints etc. A local pharmacy should be able to get it 
for you.

This isn't a very 'historical' subject is it! Let's make it so: how 
many customs for the use of old bell bearing grease can we come up 

I'll set the ball rolling: At Bapchild in Kent, "bell coom", as it 
was known, was much sort after as an infallible cure for ringworm.

Any others?
