Stopping a Bed From Squeaking

How do I get a bed to stop squeaking? After moving 11 months ago, the bed still squeaks, and it's time to ask for help. This is the 3rd time it's been set up in about 10 years. Wooden headboard, no footboard.

try using WD-40 on it. it comes in a can with a tiny straw you attach to the spray nossle, for hard to reach tiny places. sold in the automotive section at walmart kmart even auto aone pepboys etc. spray the joints where the metal frame brakets insert into the wood. it could also be the box spings squeeking where the wood on it sits on your metal rails edge. sometimes the fabric there comes through to reveal the wood and squeeks against the metal. try puting pieces of long slender foam there between the two to sandwich the two items. it should help. sometimes spings inside the mattteress break and squeek, no answer there have to live with that or buy all new mattress.

tighten up all the nuts and bolt can see.use soap or wax to lubricate where tha side rails connect to the head board and footboard.wd40 would probably work too.
