Window hard to slide

Have a few that are really hard to slide. My wife can hardly budge them. How can I make them slide better?

If you can lift the slider glass out of it's track, a good cleaning of the track often helps. I then wipe the track with silicone spray and replace the glass in the track. A bit of wax can also help with the sliding action.

go to Walmart and in the bicycle section there is a spray that lubricates the chain and is a wax base- but works like a charm on slider windows- I'm old, I forgot the name- small bottle- just shake it and apply

Another thing that works well is to clean the windows with a product called PlexUS. It leaves a silicone like coating that helps the glass slide through the seals.

Clean the tracks, as stated above. Then buy a spay can of Fluid Film (Lowes, H.D., Amazon), and spray some on the top and bottom track. FF is a wax-based lubricant, and is excellent for many things.
