How to Stop a Squeaky Door

If you have a squeaky door that is driving you crazy, here are a few things you can do to stop it from squeaking.

Is your door a solid wood door or a composite such as MDF or masonite?

Chances are your door is made of a composite material. If this is the case, you probably don’t want to plane or sand the sticking edge of the door. Anyway, a pre-hung door should not need to be planed or sanded because it should be correctly sized for the opening of the door.

The easiest way to rid yourself of that annoying squeaky door is…

Apply some petroleum jelly to its hinges. Alternatively, you can use WD-40 or lithium lubricant spray on the door hinges as well.
