Regular wear and tear and the build-up of dirt and grime can result to sticky door locks that just can’t be opened easily. If you experience difficulty when you slide your key in and out of the keyhole or when you turn the lock, your lock needs lubrication. A graphite powder is recommended since this does not attract dirt that can build up.
