How to make bamboo needles more slick?

I love my bamboos, but with the yarn I’m using right now they feel “sticky” and I’m having a hard time getting the stitches to move across the needle. Is there a way to make them more slick?

TIA!

I’ve read that rubbing them with waxed paper helps.

TY, Ingrid. :heart:

Wax paper…magic!!!
