[TowerTalk] best way to apply PreLube

I've done the "rag" thing. I've used a WD-40 tube to spray directly on
the cable too.

But you asked for the "best" way... I remove the cables for my customers
and properly soak the cables...just like they do on my son's ship (the
USS Nimitz). Not always easy, but it really gives me the opportunity to
inspect the cables, the pulleys, and the winch!

 I would like to know from others in the Tower Talk group how they apply
Prelube to their crank up tower cables.
 The last time I treated the cables I think only 50% made it in the
cable, hihi. 
 Any easy way to do this without getting PreLUbe all over the place ?
