Also, what is the best lubricant for door hinges?

The two best lubricants to use on hinges are silicone spray and plumber's grease (a light, odorless grease used to lubricate O-rings and other rubbing surfaces in plumbing fixtures). Silicone spray, if used properly, it is the least sloppy and fairly long lasting.

can you use olive oil on door hinges? Olive oil serves as both a lubricant and solvent to remove paint, and it is gentle on your body. To lubricate squeaky hinges on doors, put a small amount of olive oil at the top of the hinge and let the drops of oil run down by moving the hinge back and forth. Wipe off the excess with a cloth.

Furthermore, is wd40 good for door hinges?

WD-40 is a fantastic product that can be used to displace moisture and lubricate moving pieces throughout your home, garage, or workshop. But one place where you should not use WD-40 is a squeaky door hinge, as the lubricant can attract dirt and dust, and may eventually cause the hinge pin to turn black.

What works best for squeaky door hinges?

THE QUICK FIX Just lifting the hinge pin and squirting a little oil into the hinge will work for the short run, but the squeaking will inevitably return. To ensure long-lasting silence, tap the hinge pin out of the hinge and coat the pin with white lithium grease. Tap the pin back in place and test the door.
