Machine Oil for Squeaky Hinges

A small bottle of machine oil or sewing machine oil is a must for your home tool box. The small pointed spout makes it perfect for putting a drop or two of oil in tight places. Use this to oil hinges. I know there are many home remedies for this but why not be organized and buy the little bottle of oil? Mayonnaise, salad oil, etc. are not really designed for squeaky hinges, even if they work.

Ok, now I've never heard of using mayo on squeaky hinges! New one on me!

But I do use vegetable oil a lot of times. Normally I use WD-40 but if I'm out of it I use vegetable oil. Also if I'm using it on something that animals, birds or my pets will be around, it's definitely vegetable oil.

For instance, when I had my hamster his wheel would start squeaking (couldn't use the plastic ones because he chewed them up! Silly rodent!) A drop of vegetable oil on either side did the trick. Same thing for bird items.

I save the machine oil (from your description I assume you are talking about 3-in-1 oil) for my sewing machine.
