Squeaky hinges are an all-too-common issue on bedroom and bathroom doors. WD-40 is the most common item used to fix squeaky doors, and if you have it on hand, it is a great fix. However, using petroleum jelly also works if you don't have WD-40 lying around. A silicone-based lubricant will prevent dust from collecting on the hinges. If the problem persists, your door hinges might not be perfectly aligned, in which case, you can call Mr. Handyman to help fix.

Doors are the entry point to almost every room in your house, and are the first thing guests see when they come to your home.
