Default Hrd to slide windows

Does anyone know of a product possibly a spray lubricant to put on the tracks of the sliding windows. Some are very hard to slide in the tracks. Or possibly another solution.

There are a number of products. One that many use and easily obtained in the bicycle section of Walmart is White Lightning Easy Lube. It is a liquid non petroleum based so it won't harm anything. It comes in a plastic bottle with a narrow tip on the end to dispense along the bottom of the track. Usually takes care of it.

But clean the track first before using the White Lightning.

As Jim said, but clean the channel and use white lighting, it dose not attract dust & dirt like petroleum & silicone products.

I'll 2nd, 3rd, 4th? The 3 in 1. I also keep a suction cup dent puller inside. Just something to help with leverage. Usually as soon as they break loose they slide easy.

My drivers side windows won't budge. Then today I get on the bus (first time in a week) and I find small chunks of black foam on the window sill near the jack control panel. I looked at the top of the frame inside and outside and can't tell where it came from. I will try white lightening for sure. I am looking at all the rubber window gaskets and none of them seem too bad. On the long term list (windshield first) to be replaced. Hopefully by Thanksgiving I will have it in a garage and out of the Florida sun.
