1. Fix a squeaky hinge. Noisy hinges are extremely annoying, but they’re also easy to fix. All you need is one of these four items: a bar of soap, petroleum jelly, a paraffin candle or some olive oil. If you choose petroleum jelly, first tap out the hinge pin from the door with a hammer. Liberally coat the hinge pin and coax it back into the door hinge. Do this for each hinge pin on the door. If petroleum jelly isn’t your de-squeaker of choice, then choose your weapon and get to de-squeaking!
