lubricate drawers


I have a stack of ~10 drawers that fit into a big cabinet housing. They are made of cheap chipboard. A couple of the drawers are so still that I am unabel to move them in and out without a mafor effort. I have sanded them with my belt sander. Also I am now using a small rasp to try and smooothe the surfaces. Is there such a product as a wood lubricant that would help the movement of the drawers.

lubricate drawers


I think there are plastic drawer slides that make the sliding easier.

Psst, I have also rubbed a bar of soap on drawer edges for temporary relief.

lubricate drawers


wax works good. rub an old candle over the part that makes contact.
soap works also but it also attracts moisture that can make things swell and then stick again.
wax also work good on sticky zippers.
