Another place that's good is putting it into a house lock. I'm not joking, if your house lock is a bit "sticky" just put some in and work the key in and out and it should be good as new.
DO NOT "make your own" graphite powder from mechanical pencil graphite refills. It won't be nearly as fine or evenly ground unless you have a motar and pestle or something.
I also use it on door hinges as well.
