I had a hinge in my office that needed cleaning and greasing. I used bacon grease for this and it worked extremely well.

For this badge bit, I used this product: https://a.co/d/dr9barz WD-40 Specialist Protective White Lithium Grease Spray with SMART STRAW SPRAYS 2 WAYS, 10 OZ based on what other posters had used. The pictures show each of the hinges before greasing, an action shot and the finished hinges with excess wiped off. I went ahead and did the rest of the exterior doors in the house since it was so easy. The hard part was not getting the grease everywhere with the spray can.

I went with food-based fat, rather than lithium grease. Some Plant Butter, because that is what I had on hand. Solid at room temperature.

I have never greased hinges before but I think the cabinet appreciated it.
I used 100% Coconut oil to take care of these hinges, it has been warm lately so it is liquid right now. I guess that means it can be distributed easier.

This is one set of hinges that`ll never bother anyone again with their squeak. (until they start squeaking again)
