    I interested in this too. Not sure what soft close drawers are but the drawers are impossible to open on the dresser I bought

      I had trouble with the drawers on an old wash stand I had refinished opening. They were well and truly stuck. My son and husband provided the muscle power to get them open. I took them out of the carcass and used a wax candle to rub wax on the rails and on the edges of the drawers. They are working fine now, though I try to remember to open them occasionally. This piece of furniture predates modern drawer rails by a century or so. Easy and cheap solution.

    I have them on all the kitchen cupboards and drawers in my kitchen. We have lived in this house for four years (don't know when they were put up) without a problem, I would try the beeswax or some kind of lubricant. I would also check to make sure there isn't something in the sliders or hinges that could be stopping them from closing on their own.
