sliding windows

My windows are really hard to slide open and closed. Is there an easy fix for this? Tried lithium grease but that did not help at all. It's been raining and the tracks are kinda wet but they were not any easier dry. Thanks.

Silicone spray will help. Just have to reapply every few months

Sliding Windows

I have found that TDL (Teflon Dry lubricant) does a really great job on any number of things, i.e. cabinet latches, windows etc and the material is white and can be wiped off really cleanly.

Definitely a dry lubricant. Wet ones will get messy with dirt, etc. Teflon dry lubricant.
