The Trick to Unstuck a Tough to Open Drawer.


This often happens on old dressers.

Over time, the drawers no longer slide and it gets stuck.

No need to change the furniture either. The trick to unjamming the drawer is to use candle wax:

How to do

1. Take a candle.

2. Open the drawer.

3. Rub the candle around the sides where the drawer rubs against the cabinet.

4. Rub well until the wax softens slightly and is evenly spread.


There you go, your wooden drawer is unstuck 🙂

No more drawers that no longer slide and squeak every time you open them.

If your drawer is still stuck, the wood may have swollen.

At this time, the wood should be sanded with sandpaper.

Your turn…
