Both the front and rear exterior door handles just started sticking open after I open the doors. I have to push them back in, though there still is some "return spring" action. Closing the door will also usually cause them to snap back in.

The driver's door doesn't surprise me, but the rear door which rarely gets used is doing it too. Anyone else experiencing this?

Hold a cloth against the paint work to catch any drips and runs. Try to spray into the handle cavity as it goes into the door to push out any gunk there. Hopefully the combination of spray and moving the handle will free it up.
Best done outside and leave windows open to allow smell to dissipate.

Whichever lubricant you select make sure one of its properties is that it repels dust/dirt.
