Often a sticking mainsail is the result of goop building up in the luff track, so the first step is to clean out the track. I have used Sailcote or simple silicone spray with great results. I have used a bloeshield product with good results. I have heard folks talk about using liquid soap but personally had terrible results when I actually used it having to go up the mast to clean the mess out.
