    my bi-fold shower door is particularly stiff to close, it ends up juddering quite a bit.

    i can close it quietly by lifting the handle slightly and pushing the fold, however the no amount of telling gets the wife to do that.

    what is the best lubricant for the track bearing in mind it will be getting wet regularly and i don't want to damage the tray or chrome parts of the shower cubicle.

    it's a Daryl Iana bi-fold enclosure if that makes any difference.

    A silicone lubricant/grease would be the best bet.

    Mr. Sheen or any silicone based polish.

    Spray in tracks, buff up.

    You won't believe the difference.

    Also works like magic on the hinges of
    my aluminium / nylon shower door.

    Trust me, it's almost free and you have nothing to lose!
