Squeak, squeak, squeak — that annoying sound you hear every time you open or close the door. There comes a time when you just don’t want to hear it anymore. So how do you stop annoying door squeaks?
Most of us have heard of using a well known product called WD-40 to eliminate squeaks on door hinges (auto & home). But what do you do when you don’t have that product handy to use to stop that annoying squeak?
Here’s a quick tip: I suggest using any type of cooking oil that you have in your pantry (preferably the cheaper kind). Simply pour a small amount into the cap and allow the oil to drip from top to bottom onto the hinge. Then open and close the door several times to allow the oil to penetrate into the hinge. Be sure to clean off any excess oil the may drip down. This tip is more affordable than purchasing any product from your local hardware store.
