Apply ordinary Johnson’s paste wax to the runners of the drawers so that they will glide smoothly. Pull the drawer completely out of the bureau case, flip it upside down, use a paper towel or rag to apply wax to the surface of the drawer (“the shoe”) that slides on the runner within the case. Apply wax to the runner within the case, too. The wood dust that gets all over your folded clothes is caused by these two surfaces grinding against one another. The wax reduces the friction. Johnson’s paste wax can be found at any grocery store and it’s cheap. If you still can’t find it, use shoe polish or rub a candle on these surfaces to render the same effect.
