I use the white votive candles that you get in the supermarket. So far, so
good. Things slide but don't get all gooed up like some spray lubricants
do. I use the same candles to rub on screws to make them easier to screw
Great! thanks for the suggestion, got those candles around for power
outage emergencies. Should have remembered, wax on the old wooden
drawers. With all those metal channels forgot about wood on wood.
I used to use soap for wood screws, went in slick, over time STAYED
the soap dried and those screws stayed in.
I get good results lubing stuff like that with a light coat of wax.
Just ball up some wax paper and rub down all the sliding surfaces.
If you have a corrosion problem... you may be on your own.
The wax paper also works well on double hung wood windows, and other
large bearing surface area, light load applications that need to remain
clean. (Use common sense, good judgment far as getting splinters...)
