Elementary Question - charging a buffng wheel

Hank Knight
I'm new to buffing wheels. Instructions with the one I bought recommends dressing the wheel with tallow or similar "hard fat" to facilitate adherence of the buffing compound. I know nothing about "hard fat", so I applied some honing oil to the wheel before charging it with compound. It worked, but it's messy. What do you use?
