Yes, I just slather the tire lube (soap) on the tube. I believe it has some benefit for preventing pinch flats. There are no negative issues with it.
I have had some luck using Slime for thorns and small punctures, but those only represent about half of the possible flats we get, pinches and nails being the other half. So when I am serious about not getting a flat, I just go with a mousse.
I saw your video and comment on using Tru-Flate tire mounting lubricant on the tube. Do you just slather a good bit of this all over the tube before installing the tube in the tire? Will it break down/harm the rubber of the tube?
Is the primary purpose to mitigate pinch flats?
Have you had success with Slime or other sealants inside the tube for thorns or small punctures?
