Looking for good Lube for Aluminum Window tracks that don't attract dust etc.

Anybody used Alum-A-Lub Lubricating Cleaner Spray?

I was thinking either Silicone spray or Teflon dry spray.

I've used silicone spray but it doesn't last long. I might try using silicone gel but I don't like the idea of having something that can attract dust within the track and turn into wet sandpaper.

I use a block of my wife’s canning wax in the channel of our sliding doors, for the outside screen door. I slide it back and forth to get a coating of wax in the channel. It works great and stays put for a long time.

Hum, I need to re-do a couple sliding windows.
I last used a used bar of soap because I did the bathroom window and the soap was right there. Of course I used the wife's soap. Saved mine and didn't have to go in the garage to find something else.

Go to your local Lowes and pick up some L.C. Wax spray, it is made for lubricating aluminum products.
