My front door hinges squeak every once in awhile. Curious to see what everyone is using to lubricate them?

I used either WD40 or some silicone lube if I have it on hand. Keeps them quiet for a while...

Try liquid wrench lubricating and perpetrating spray. Lasts much longer than wd40.

I will give the white lithium grease a shot. I have tried wd40 and lubricating wrench with the same results as @Jhenderson. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone.

I use white lithium grease as well, but my drivers door has squeaked since the day it came off the dealers lot

My drivers door squeaks too. White lithium spray on grease works for a short time only. My other doors squeak, too, but they don't get used as often so it lasts a little longer.

Slip 2000. Good for machine guns, good enough for doors.

Best lube I found is motorcycle chain lube. It's designed to penetrate and work under high pressure. Works great on hinges.

I've used whatever grease I have nearby since I got the truck. Needs it about 1-2x per year and I've never bothered cleaning any old gunk off.

I agree. After reading your post I went to the cabinet and sure enough, one tube of graphite. It’s lasted since the day you posted. I’ll never oil the hinge again. Thanks!
