Use Johnson wax to wax the runners on sticky dresser drawers. Makes the drawers slide smoothly. This can make sticky secondhand furniture drawers slide smoothly. It can work wonders even on cheap runners.

Wow, thanks. I was just about to post this as a question!

Where do you get this wax? Is there another "brand"?

Hi Paula,

Any kind of wax will work. Use the end of an old candle, some beeswax for waxing thread, or ski wax. Johnson Waxis available at most grocery stores.
