1.) dab of grease between thumb and index

2.) draw new cable through fingers a few times from anchor to end

3.) draw once through a rag to remove the excess

4.) plug and play.

Grease works great for the short term, but tends to get full or dirt in the long term. Some molybdenum dry lubes such as Dri-Slide work well for lubing cables. I personally would avoid grease unless you like gunky cables after a while. Ungreased cables will work better longer. Greased cables will work better shorter.

I don't know if this is a good idea, but I have been using Tri-Flow by
spraying up all the exposed housing ends every time I re-lube my
bikes.
