I have found Boeshield T-9 to do an excellent job.

It is a lubricant and corrosion inhibitor developed by Boeing for aerospace applications.

Works great to protect your engine as well as giving it a good shine!

Check out the LPS line of products, specifically dry lubricants that won't attract dirt.

I second Boeshield (actually developed by Boeing). It works great even in a salt water environment. The last time I bought some was from West Marine but you can get it much cheaper on line. I've used slide lube also and it works fine.

I know this depends on the kind of slides you have, but generally what parts do you apply lube to?

I have PowerGear electric slides. I put it on the pinion gears, gear racks, rollers (mine are steel), bushings, thrust washers and spray the areas where the steel support beams ride close to or against each other. Pretty much anywhere there is or may be friction. Slide lube, Boeshield and the others mentioned above are dry lubes, so dirt won't stick to them.
