What is a good lubricant for noisy interior door hinges?

TIA

I like the silicones.

2 and 1 oil works as does just about any lubricant.

A few drops of WD 40, or silicone with work. Just be ready with a rag to clean up any excess.
Graphite works best but makes a black mess.

Thought about WD40 but thought that may get a little messy. Didnt know if there was anything more specific out there.

Squeeky interior doors


When I was putting my newly painted white doors back up and holding the hinge pins in my hand I always get black smudges on the doors. It's an oily black. I didn't know if I should have cleaned them off, but they work fine so I just reinserted them as is.

Pop the pins out , coat them with vaseline and slide them back in. Then wipe off excess. Last for a long time

I popped the pins out, sprayed some lithium grease into a rag and coated it.

Put them back in and I was good to go.

My favorite is plumbers grease, comes in a little teeny tub. Just a dab on each pin and it seems to last forever.
