Default How to keep sliding windows from sticking?

I am sure this has been addressed many times if I knew where or how to look. Has anyone found a lasting solution to keep the sliding windows on Newell's from sticking?

I cleaned the tracks good then sprayed with a dry silicone spray. Made a big difference. Also if you push or pull from the bottom its a little easier.

Like Forest said silicon spray and I also agree that pushing and pulling from the bottom makes it easier.

I think oil or grease would attract more dirt or sand, etc.
A dry lubricant like silicone or teflon would work best.
