Default Lubricating cables

I'm looking for some suggestions on lubricating my cables (brake, clutch and throttle cables). What would you guys and gals suggest? I want to use something in my current inventory so that means a choice of: automotive bearing grease, engine oil, differential gear lube or motorcycle/bicycle chain lube.

Bearing grease seems too messy and hard to apply to a cable and engine and gear lube seem too runny to me so I was thinking of using chain lube because it's relatively thick but not too thick and not runny.

What do you all think?
McGyver could fix that with bubble gum.
