I also spray the gaskets around the slide and the rails with dry silicone lube a couple times a year to prolong the life of the gaskets.

You can also use wd-40 on the gaskets.

True, but WD-40 smells.

Maybe some PAM or an unscented Cooking Spray.
Maybe a better idea would be some Mineral Oil or even some vegetable oil although the cooking oils could attract critters.

Or not.

The Mineral Oil is generally a petroleum product. Very weak as a rule. Some of it is food grade like they use on cutting boards.

Maybe some bees wax or even furniture wax. Paraffin?

Lots of non-chemical, non-smelly choices out there
