Patio slide door with the screen door is dirt and grease?

I have the patio slide door with the screen door. The screen door wheels are dirty and grease. What Silicone lubricant would work best for spraying my screen door wheels? Thanks

Remove the door from the track. Clean the track with soap and water. You can clean the rollers with soap and water too if its caked with mud. Wd-40 is ok to use for cleaning purposes... using a toothbrush or pipe cleaner you can clean as good as you can. Blow it out with air and wipe it clean. Then use any silicone spray. Silicone is best because it won't leave an oily residue. You may just need to apply it more often. Oils attract dirt as you probably know.

Do I use WD-40 and Blow it out with air? and then do I use any silicone spray as well? Is it correct?

Yes. I suggested the wd-40 as a solvent to clean oily dirty grease out. The air is to blow it dry once its clean. (Wet oily parts attract more dirt). The silicone spray is a good lubricant that dries pretty quickly leaving a slick residue behind. Graphite could also work as a lubricant but it looks dirty.
