I got a new stylus, the ordinary rubber type, and it is working fine, but it's squeaking (which is somewhat irritating). I'm currently using talc to stop that, but it creates quite a mess. I was thinking of trying petrolatum or wax, but I don't know if these would cause the rubber to deteriorate, and I don't want to use something that could do that (like oil). So has anyone had such issue and how did they fix it?

    What is a stylus, in this context? – Caius Jard Nov 14 '18 at 16:22

Apparently the display was dirty and this caused the squeaking when in touch with the new not-worn-out stylus. Proper cleaning solved it.

(It was a touch display stylus, not a wax tablet one.)
