Slide Lube

Anyone use the CRC Power Lube on their slide tracks and now having problems? I recently used it on the gear assembly along with track on all slides. First time i cycled the kitchen slide after lubing it seemed to act unusually sluggish. After inspecting the track the lube seemed to have dried to a very tacky touch. Wish i'd not used it on the slide tracks at all. Concerned with how tacky the gear mechanisms are??

I've used CRC on the wheel bearing under each slide, but i use silicone spray on the glides as it won't collect and creates a nonwet friction free surface. Afterward, seems amazing for about 10 actions, then I'm repeating process. Driven by fear I guess.

Yes, i saw it, used it, and now concerned that it is causing slides to drag. I'm going to get it cleaned off the best i can i try something else. What a pain in the A*s
