I just installed new trim around an exterior door and put in a new sill with
a gasket. The trim has the Stanley style foam which doesn't stick to latex
paint. I forgot about the gasket on the sill. The bottom of the door
adheres to the gasket making opening after a few minutes difficult. I have
always found solid rubber gaskets stick to latex paint and can pull it off.
Has anyone remedied this with a lubricant or powder? I know I can take the
door off and sand the bottom of the door and apply a polyurathane, but I
prefer a quick fix. Any suggestions?
That would help slow moisture intrusion. Remove hinge pins and put
door on sawhorses and seal top & bottom with WB polyu as it dries

I hate glossy latex paint...stuff always sticks to it. Never tried powder
but it might work. Try rubbing some talcum powder on the paint where it
touches the door. Rub it in so *it* sticks to the paint.
