    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.
