Tire Lube

I know that there are commercial lubes out there and other products that work (silicone spray, glass cleaner, etc.) but what do you use? What do you keep on your bike in case you have to change/patch a tube in the field?

I use dish liquid and water mixed to change tires. On the bike I carry a sample shampoo bottle full of dish liquid to mix in a partial bottle of deinking water if needed. I just about always carry more water than I need rather than carry pre-mixed lube.
Good tip Qwerty. Thats what I was looking for. Thank you very much.
