Cheap oil-based lubricants might not be formulated in the right way to pass over the lubricants you may wish to apply to the garage door.
Oil-based lubricants are great for cleaning up grease, grease seepage, and lubrication droplets from the door mechanism, however, in order to properly clean them you must try them on the Mechanism first and make a note of whether or not you have to wipe them off.
Lubrication will minimize the friction between the moving parts and will help prevent the mechanisms from corroding. Typical lubricants used for latches and door hinges include superglue, Teflon, Borax, and petroleum jelly. Adding a coat of lubricant to the mechanism assembly will improve its life expectancy.
