    Shore Wala Darwaza

    I have a big problem - I need some expert advice.

    See, the door in my kitchen squeaks when it is shut or opened. It makes an extremely annoying sound that goes like - "eeeaNounnnNchhhnnnN". I find this noise very disturbing particularly when concentrating on helping my kids with their homework. We do homework in the kitchen extension on the eating table. So every time someone comes in or goes through the kitchen, the door squeaks. I tried oiling the hinges, but that didn't work. Even used Desi Ghee once. Honest! I don't want to take the whole thing apart and put a new door, because I like the look of the old door. It is an old maple stained in light brown with hand made 19th century inlaid stained glass from Boston. So this is my big dilemma: Old graceful but squeaky door or a new modern quiet door with no personality. Please help!!

    NYAhmadi, don't get rid of the old door... antiques are cool.

    Try using big lumps of greese on every single hinge or pivot that door rotates on. It should help.

      hey instead of useing grease .. which though effective can be very unsightly.. try getting your hands on some light machine oil -- the kinda oil they use for smal rotating parts in small machines or you can even use cooking oil,... just put a drop of it inot all the hinges and you should be set to go
