Squeaky pocket doors

A quick learner from Winnipeg, manitoba, Canada says:
Hi! My pocket doors squeak something fierce and I'd like to lube them but I'm not sure what to use. The doors appear to hang from a set of 23-138 rollers. Should I use grease? Oil? Silicone? Graphite?
Thanks, Derek

I know some repairmen like to use graphite or grease, but that could get messy. On the other hand, a spray oil like WD-40 could collect dirt. I would suggest using a silicone spray first, which tends to be the cleanest lubricant. If the squeak is still present then try some graphite.
