I have used Tri-Flow for years (which is teflon based). Over two decades actually now that I think about it.
. Works great because it flushes out stuff while leaving a good lube behind.
I did not know manufacturers specifically recommended a teflon lube like that, but it makes good sense. Frankly, I think any good cleaner/lube like Break-Free or similar would work, too. I think the key is the fact after using it, you are leaving chewed-up, wet organic material jammed in the teeth. Just spraying ANYTHING to displace some of that water and the material that holds it/retains it there is the key.
