Not dumb at all, The ski tech may suggest you get new bindings. Remember bindings aren't like wine, they don't get better with age. You can use WD40 each time before you go or the old basic 3in1 oil lubricant in the little red and white can.
Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.

Thanks, that was what I was looking for. What about silicone or teflon sprays? Will definitly make sure they do release after lubricating.

I've used them before. make sure all of you lubricated surfaces are as clean as possible for dirt, grit etc. You can even go so far as to flush them out with a garden hose. Let them dry over night and lube'em up.
