This winter, I have been doing a reno inside, and have kept my saw outside to do the cutting. I has kept the dust in the basement down, but I created a problem.

One of my tape measures, I would leave at my work station outside. It is under my covered outdoor kitchen, but snow did still blow in. The tape measure does not move very well these days. I wa wondering if spraying some lubricant would make it move better?

I don't know but for some things such as Little Giant ladders I have read that wiping with Lemon Pledge furniture polish works.
