Wooden Drawer Units .. help with enabling wooden drawers to slide easily.

England Eng

I'm busy tidying my garden shed which contains several wooden drawer units.

Which method have you found best please for helping the wooden drawers to slide easily to and fro ?

I've heard of soap, wax ... all kinds of ideas ..

Thanks in advance for your help.

Candle wax. Rub a candle along all the edges.

Depending on how badly they stick you might want to run a piece of sandpaper over first - gets rid of dirt built up over the years and just takes out any swollen wood before the wax seals it.

Thanks, Urbanite..
I rubbed all touching sides and edges with candle wax, as kindly advised by Snoop and Bulba, but one big drawer still sticks, so I might sand it and then re-wax it.

My OH uses silcone polish spray. and on quality furniture uses beeswax.
