washer sizes

I have Kohler shower faucet stems which take small washers; I went to the hardware store and the retired plumber said the smallest size is ?ott, then double ott then 1/4 inch.
I had trouble putting the single ott in the stem cup. Is there a smaller washer or should I use a lubricant? I scewed the washer in but it seemed a bit too big. I know if I put a smaller one in it is better than a bigger one b/c the small one will cover the seat and will swell.
Is there a size just under single ott?
Thanx
Pete
