I have heavy glass sliding doors in one bedroom closet.
(They slide past each other on different rails.)
One of the doors has begun to stick, making it hard
to push. I looked at the rail and saw black, sticky stuff.
I'm conjecturing , faut de mieux, that it's rubber, somehow
come off the gasket that (I assume) lines the underpart
of the door that slides on the rail. Correct assumption?
I tried removing the gunk with several solvents -- alcohol and
paint remover -- but no luck.
The doors are far too heavy for one person to remove just to examine
the possibility of rubber (or whatever) coming off on the rail,
and I don't want to call in reinforcements *if not necessary*.
However, if a gasket is deteriorating, I'd have to bite the bullet.
Thanks for any input.
