lubricating sliding door

Hello just wondering what is the best lubricant to buy for the sliding door tracks so as not to attract dust. Greg
I heard silicone spray or lanolin was the go for this.
 
Seems to work OK for me (just leaves a whiteish stain).
 
Cheers,
 
Skot

Do you use the Lanolin grease?

Only silicone spray to date.
 
But I have had several recommendations for Lanolin.

Greg,
I've always had good results with those solid  wax (I think) lubricating sticks. Its important to clean any grit out of the runners particularly the lower one. Also don't forget the runner above the nearside rear wheel.. Sorry I can't remember the trade name  but need to buy another and lubricate my door after slipping off the causeway at Shallow Crossing.
Below is the picture I took from the drivers seat whilst crossing the causeway which distracted me enough to wander away from the marker posts. Not recommended ! Think Brian captured it on video.

One of them is called Dry-Lube.   I have used it on all sorts of things and it works well

Greg,

I've always had good results with those solid  wax (I think) lubricating sticks. Its important to clean any grit out of the runners particularly the lower one. Also don't forget the runner above the nearside rear wheel.. Sorry I can't remember the trade name  but need to buy another and lubricate my door after slipping off the causeway at Shallow Crossing.

 

Looks a little deep there Roger!
Was it over the wheels?
How deep can we go in these vehicles (and survive)? Greg

Thanks Les, I have used Dry lube on the bottom and Lanolin grease on top rail.
I will see in time which one works best. Greg
