Does anybody know of a good lubricant for the screw in stopper for a camelback hydration system? I have a heck of a time getting it open sometimes.  Thanks!

Food-Grade silicone grease is probably the safest for both you and the stopper.  Use very little.

Where do you suppose I get food grade silicone grease?

Most hardware and home centers have it in the plumbing dept.  It's used as a lube and seal on O-rings since it's compatible with nearly all types of rubber and plastics.

A silicone spray will also work (same sources) but is harder to apply to a limited area.
