Squeaky Hinges

Hi Shell,

I heard you mention that the best lubricant for squeeky hinges was to use a motorcycle oil as rest are water based. I checked with companies but no one seems to know what exact kind to use. Can you please help me??

Thank you,


Hi Rickie,

My recommendation is to use a white graphite lubricant available at Canadian Tire. First remove the hinge pins and clean them with solvent. Apply a thin coat of the white graphite lubricant and replace the hinge pins. Bingo no more squeaks.

It's Just That Easy!
