Sticky slide up windows 2008 Salem T25SL

Several of our windows are "slide up" windows. Pull the tabs in and pull up to open the windows. But the windows seem "sticky" in the slots and don't slide up easily. One side slides some and the other sticks and we can't easily get them up. It takes two of us to wiggle them up to open them.

Any tips to help this situation? I was thinking a Q-tip with some Vaseline in the slots, but was afraid that may damage the rubber gaskets sealing the windows.

Any helpful ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

no suggestions except don't use Vaseline... it would be a dust and dirt magnet.

Maybe some of that stuff that lubes slide room seals?

Just a guess. I'd try it cause I have it in the garage!
