One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

I've always bought "Food Grade" Silicone.  Never used it on lines, just for those very sticky fittings.
I'm with Steve.  I use "Food Grade" Silicone for those spars that are hard to remove from the fitting and putting fittings on spars.

I see no need to put on lines.

KY didn't even make the top ten in this review, of course lube is a highly personal choice but  Oceanus Sensuals receives higher ratings coming in 3 grades from light up to good for underwater use for those who like to dunk them.

I have been cleaning my lines when I have been flying lately. In Hamburg there has been snow almost all winter. When I fly, I make sure that I wipe the lines with clean snow. Then when i get home I spay a cloth with Silicon and wipe the lines. Works like a charm.  Cheesy

Pam (the cooking spray, not Anderson) is silicon dioxide.
Can't say I've ever tried it on kite lines though.

Restaurant supply houses would have the food grade stuff for lubing grinders, slicers, etc.

I got mine from a sewing machine repair shop.
