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.
Rusty Shackleford is just the name he uses to order Pizza with.

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.
An awl could be quite handy for self defense. If it folds out perpendicular to the body of the knife, hold the knife under your knuckles and make a fist with the awl pointing out between your middle and ring fingers.
