Fixing Glider Rocker That Squeaks


We have a glider wooden chair in our living room, it came with a gliding stool. The rocker squeaks so loud that you can't sit in it and watch TV or have a conversation. HELP! My husband wants to get rid of it, but we have a lot of company and no other chair to replace it.

Try candle wax, or bees wax which will help wood in so many ways. The candle wax would be a little more resilient and might help the glider slide along easier, but personally, I would treat the area with bees wax and then add the candle wax on top of the bees wax because bees wax is very good for dry wood and then the candle wax would aid in the ease of gliding. Basically the bees wax would treat the wood from being so dry and the candle wax help it glide smoothly. I know candle wax is good on stuck dresser drawers, and since the area being treated is not visible, there would not be any harm done if it does not work.
Good luck! (11/13/2007)

If the wax route doesn't work, try some talcum powder or cornstarch where the wood rubs. I put cornstarch under a carpet where floorboards squeaked and it worked great.

You can also stop a squeak by using spray cooking oil. (11/13/2007)
