The door to my children's room has been sticking as the weather has warmed up and the wood has expanded. If I am not mistaken, isn't there something I can rub along the top and sides of the door to help ease it closed? I seem to remember my father using something like a commercially produced bee wax type product.

Any ideas?

Only problem with that would be if the door had a finish to it, he might not want to be sanding that off if at all possible. Then again, the finish may be getting scraped due to the sticking door. I would think wax could stick if it got warm enough in the house during the day.

My daughter's room door and window are doing the same thing, so I'm curious to know if there is anything out there that can help the situation.

Is the door centered in the frame perfectly, or is this a case of it not being hung right to begin with? You can always adjust the hinges slightly to fix the problem, especially if it's not level or has extra room at the bottom.

The door is centered and it hangs true. The door doesn't always scrape when we close it, only when it's humid. I think I may check over at the DIY Network.

I've used Ivory soap on sticking windows before. You may want to try this before you do anything more dramatic as it probably won't hurt (it may not help, either).

Is it a solid wood door or a hollow core door?

Probably late-94, when a friend of mine showed me how to search for wrestlers real names. I remember it taking a good 30 minutes just to upload the page (and now, thanks to the dial-up connection on this laptop, it takes me only half that time!).
