You know the old saying "the squeaky iron cobra gets the oil"?

...

I'd suggest something designed to lubricate but not leave a mess or attract dust. There are some good teflon type sprays out there I might be tempted to try if this happens to me.

Oil's well that ends well. Chains and parts need to be lubricated every once in a while. Don't go overboard, just a drop of motor oil and let work the part around so that it gets into all the nooks and crannies.

Stay away from WD40. It will attract dirt.

I usually use silicone spray.
Here's a short little article that tells you when, and when not to, use it:

Yeah, WD40 isn't recommended for cycle chains or pedals.

It's more than likely the u-joint squeaking, not the bearings or any inner parts. I use the same Slip 2000 EWL lube that I use on my guns. It cleans and lubes, and it's non-petrolium based, so it will not collect dust and grime.

I've got the same problem. Annoying squeak, even if it doesn't affect performance. I used WD40 and it didn't help. Shoulda looked here first haha.

Stay away from motor oils.The have additives in them,that MAY be harmful to your pedal.Silicone,and teflon lubes seem to worrk the best.
