Smooth Slide

I have aluminum storm windows on many of the windows of my house.

I curse them every time I have to look at them. I double curse them every time I have to open one. They jump easily off track and the metal sliding on metal is a feeling similar to fingernails on a blackboard. Eeek! But, they are here to stay until I figure out what I want to replace them with.....and then save the money to purchase/create said replacement.

I'm not sure why it took me so long to figure this out, but all of a sudden it dawned on me that a little spritz of WD40 down each of the side channels might help. What difference that makes!

The storms still look hideous, but now they slide up and down without problem.
