    Hello Mysherm, I am not sure if you want a quick fix or if you feel like stripping off the paint and going through the sanding, priming, repainting, and sealing of your cabinets. I am guessing a quick fix is probably what you want right now, so here is a link telling you how to use a candle to do that ;) Good Luck and Thank You for using Hometalk for answers ;)

    Spray a paper towel with Pam and go around the inside of the doors and where they touch the cabinet when closed. When you dust or clean the cabinets, just reapply.

    And double check your hardware. The hinges and any closers you are using may not have been perfectly aligned when you put everything back together. More likely, in my opinion, is that the last coat or two of paint was allowed to drip to the bottom of the door and was not sanded. Without doing the whole cabinet, you could just resand, lightly paint, and seal the bottom edges. Best wishes 😇

    Try a dab of vaseline. Rub it on all the edges, do not pack it in. A little bit goes a long way

    A small amount of Vaseline applies to all the edges will make a non-stick layer.
