So easy to do with what you most likely already have on hand!


  1. Pour a little cheap oil on the hinge or on your fingers and rub on the hinge, whichever is easier.
  2. Test to see if it squeaks, add more if needed.
  3. Enjoy the silence!

He: But we don't have any squeaky doors!

He opens door. SQUEEEE!
She glares and saves the recipe.
So easy, so quick, and so inexpensive, not to mention that I had this on hand and didn't have to run buy something. Thanks for posting!

This recipe is amazing! I had this super squeaky door hinge for ages, but thought it needed a major something to fix it, so I never even attempted that. But this is so easy and quick and works like a charm. WOW! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, UmmBinat!
