I was wondering if there is a temporary alternative for sewing machine oil? My machine is running a bit stiff, and it looked a bit dry inside of it.

Maybe 3 in 1 oil would work. It's a general purpose oil for household use, and the can has a little pour spout.

When I run out of sewing machine oil, I use just plain old mineral oil.

I've been using 3 in 1 machine oil for years now, it works well.
