noisy vinyl bug strip

A quick learner says:
the 59-053 sliding screen door bug strip makes a loud noise where it rubs against the glass. Can anything be done about this?

I pulled out a piece of the 59-053 and tried duplicating the sound you are hearing by rubbing it against some glass. I tried rubbing it hard, light, on clean glass, and on dirty glass and I was not able to make a sound. So I could not test different ways of preventing this sound but I did try a few different things you could try. One way would be to use a silicone spray or furniture polish, but both of these methods leaves the glass looking messy. Another way would be to use a dry lubricant like the 75-077 slider slicker, but even the dry applicant left a small mess on the glass.
