Oil the door

Try to oil the door hinges without removing them. It may be that the problem is not so great and only a little oil for spraying would be enough without having to take the whole door apart. Use a silicone or motor oil based spray to cover the hinge as much as possible and check if this has done the annoying squeak before resorting to another method.


Take a used piece of soap

Oils with soap

That’s another quick fix that does not require much effort. Lubricate the hinges directly with soap. We recommend taking an already used soap as it will help you to get to the most difficult spots. You can also use liquid soap, but this will not lead to a permanent solution.

Oil the doors with mayonnaise

Mayonnaise can do wonders for squeaky doors. What you should do is unscrew the hinges, then lightly grease the pen with full fat mayonnaise and screw the hinges back into place. Pivot the door back and forth a few times to allow the mayonnaise to spread well and wipe off the excess with a damp cloth. Already the door squeaking should be gone.

Drip the door hinges with wax

The paraffin wax’s petrolium-based wax can also help you eliminate the annoying sound of squeaking hinges. Light a candle to soften the wax. Unscrew the hinges and drip the liquid wax on top. Be very careful not to burn yourself. Bring the door back. Swing something back and forth to spread the wax. If it still squeaks, repeat the procedure.
