Lubricant by B. Cumming Company

Grease it up, rub in in, and feel the warmth!

Overall, “Elbow Grease Hot Quickie” is a lubricant that is nearly identical to the Original Elbow Grease formula with one exception – it purports to be a warming cream. Rubbing some on your dick does make it tingle (not quite sure if I’d call it a warming sensation) and provides a slightly different experience.
Very easy to use – just lube up and stroke.
No instructions provided. Contains potentially dangerous chemicals!
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


I received two types of “Elbow Grease” to review – the original formal and “Hot Quickie”. These products are essentially identical except that “Hot Quickie” claims to be the “oldest warming cream formula on the market today.” Given the similarities, please see my review for the Original Formula as the same information applies to “Hot Quickie”.

Similar to the original formula, unless you know what it is in advance, you will not be able to tell what Elbow Grease is used for. Remarkably, the small plastic container it comes in has nothing more than the manufacturer’s logo displayed, the name of the product, and a list of ingredients (in VERY small print). Because different colors were used in the printing process, by very carefully inspection of the ingredients, it is possible to read them on the Hot Quickie container – this is not true of the container for the original formula. The big problem is trying to figure out what, exactly, “Elbow Grease Hot Quickie” is! (Really!) Fortunately, I solved that problem during my product testing for the original formula and knew that “Hot Quickie” is, according to B. Cumming Company’s (yes, that’s the manufacturer’s name!) web site, a “greaseless, odorless, thick, cream lubricant that [is] sensual and pleasurable for all types of sex and masturbation” Given this enlightening information I, well . . . okay – you know! I put some on my dick and masturbated! (Good news - so far, I haven't noticed any hair on my palms!)

I will say that very little is needed and that it does feel good. Of course, I didn’t have the chance to test it out on “all types of sex” but heck, I can’t complain as masturbation isn’t all that bad either! True to the claim on the manufacturer’s web site, Hot Quickie “adds a combination of warming with a hint of cooling sensation to the skin.” Actually, that’s not entirely accurate – I didn’t notice any sensations from this lubricant except when it’s on my dick. For me, the sensation if more of a tingling sensation rather than warm or cool. Although it’s an interesting feeling, I’m not convinced that it adds anything to the experience other than some variety.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Hot Quicky has a creamy white appearance, very similar to the consistency and viscosity of cold cream. (No, I don’t use cold cream but I do know what it looks like!) Once applied, it doesn’t feel greasy and it’s not necessary to use a lot. Use just enough to get things slicked up and enjoy!

    • Smooth
    • Thick

Taste / Aroma

Although not strong, Hot Quickie does have a slight smell to it – very similar to paste (used in schools) but with a mediciny-menthol touch added to it. The smell, however, isn’t unpleasant and is barely perceptible - unless you stick your nose in it - which I would not recommend! Due to the ingredients, which I will discuss in a moment, I would not suggest tasting Elbow Grease.
    • Light smell


Hot Quickie is very simple to use – merely apply a little to your dick and pound away! I doubt many men will have an objection to that! Once applied, it doesn’t feel greasy and does a fairly good job as a lubricant. For me, it really doesn’t provide a warm or cool sensation but rather a tingly one – a bit strange, really. I’m not sure if I really like it or not. It is, however, different.

I’ve also noticed that it is a bit difficult to wash off. That’s a bit of a nuisance but it doesn’t bother me too much. The problem is that it continues to tingle until it’s been completely removed.
    • Ingredients may be dangerous
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water


Arguably, this is one of the most discreet packages I’ve seen – unless you know in advance, you can’t figure out what’s in it (really)! The container I received holds just one once and, I believe, may be okay to travel with but do you really want to explain to TSA what “Elbow Grease Hot Quickie” is used for? It really is a problem, however, that no instructions, directions, or warnings (more on that in a moment) of any kind are provided.

I would like to mention that the product I received looks different than what is pictured on EF: here's what I received:

    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Minimal

Personal comments

Of the two types of Elbow Grease I’ve tried, I think I prefer the original (the jury is still out on the warming feature of Hot Quickie) – both feel great and are fairly easy to use. Cleanup is a bit of a pain but not too bad. There are several concerns, however, that I do have with this product.

The first is that I don’t believe that this should be used with toys as it may damage them. The manufacturer’s web site states that Elbow Grease is “not latex friendly [but may be] used [with] polyurethane condoms. Creams may stain some fabrics.” The more important issue concerns the ingredients. Although the packaging in the original formula is nearly impossible to read, the ingredients on the Hot Quickie formula are (barely) legible and can be read. Interestingly, both products claim to have exactly the same ingredients! They’re also listed in the same order:

“Water, mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin, sorbitan stearate, PEG-8, stearyl alcohol (and) ceteareth-20, stearic acid, lanolin oil, sodium borate, polysorbate, cetyl alcohol, imidazolindyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben, menthol”

In light of this, it’s possible that the menthol serves as the warming agent (which is also what the manufacturer claims) and that there is, perhaps, a greater amount of menthol in this product than in the original forumla.

The most significant issue is that Elbow Grease contains preservatives including imidazolindyl urea. Urea, in case you weren’t aware of it is PEE , that’s right URINE (and the source of the URINE is unknown). Even more unsettling is that the National Institute of Health states that imidazolidinyl urea is a formaldehyde releaser and may cause cancer; this chemical is also "listed in the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Inventory. Ugh! Given this information (and refer to my review for the Original Formula), I don’t think I would consider this for internal use such as vaginal sex and am also concerned that a small percentage of people (approx. 2 to 3 percent) have been known to develop contact dermatitis when it is applied. Again, see my review for the original formula for additional information.

Overall, the use of Elbow Grease seems to do the job and feels great. I don’t think this would be, by any means, my lube of choice and would not us it with most toys.
Follow-up commentary
This is a tough one to rate - it's just okay. Nothing to write home about but not awful either. Elbow grease gets the job done (funny, but my elbows never feel greasy). Personally, I can take it or leave it.

    Thanks SMichelle!

    stainedclear, i can't believe i did either!

    wetone123 - I hope I didn't "rub it the wrong way" - my penis won't like me much if I keep doing that and, believe me, I want to keep it happy!

    Thanks, beck!!!
