Roller hockey grip question

Okay, I'm in a roller hockey league, and the floor there is very slick, so a bunch of people (on both teams) were losing traction all over the place...does anybody know of a good home remedy for getting your wheels to grip the floor better? I have indoor wheels already. How effective is this stuff?

Any help would be appreciated.

I borrowed some of my friend's. it works, but its effects don't last very long. Especially if your floor is really dusty. It really is worth your time/money to just get softer wheels if you plan on playing in this league for a while

wipe your wheels down with windex works like a charm

Poor some coca-cola on your wheels, works good.

IMOHO that grip juice stuff isn't worth it. Basicly your paying for the solution to clean your wheels water does the same thing.

Spray hairspray onto your wheels. That's what I do, and it works great.

+1 - It works well for me and is easy to try out. I put some coke in a spray bottle, remove my wheel (rink rats - the best IMO) and do em up

I just can't go along with that cola idea, just sounds like a really bad idea. I suggest just getting softer wheels.
