Stuck Window

If you've got: a stuck window

Ideal solution: Silicone spray, which provides a slick, long-lasting coating for window tracks

In-a-pinch fix: A candle

How it works: Rub the stub of a paraffin or beeswax candle along the tracks to leave a trail of waxy residue. This will help the window slide with less friction, so it won't stick.
