Introduction: How to Stop Squeeking Door Hinges

this instructable is about how to stop those annoying door hinges from squeeking(for temporary use)

Step 1: Step 1 Things You'll Need

things you'll need-pam-an old rag u don't particularly care about

Step 2: Step 2 Spray the Door Hinges

i like to spray the inside as the following pic shows but usually that does the trick but if t still squeeks try spraying the out side of the hinges

sry that the things not in focus i couldnt do it with 1 hand

Step 3: Step 3 Wiping It Down

now the last step just wipe the grease from the door and hinges. note; there will be some old black grease stuff, wipe that off as well

WD-40 is the magic weapon against anything squeaky.

Yeah, I don't see why you wouldn't just use some WD40

I use soap. Also liquid soap.

You want some kind of machine oil (not WD40, or vegetable oil). 20W40? L

Pam's soybean-based oil probably will not be a good long-term solution and can go rancid.

IMHO, you would be better off getting a proper mineral-based lube for a permanent solution to a squeeking hinge. I usually use Tri-flow, the mineral- and Teflon-based lube I use on my bike chain.

Mentioning that product has been known to cause flamewars! <grin> Is it really a lube, or is it something else? <rhetorical><br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.wd40.com/AboutUs/our_history.html">History of WD-40</a><br/><br/>

Needs a little editing (such as removing the duplicate "step 1"), and can you change the font back to normal? The "typed" stuff shoots right off the side of my screen.
