    DefaultSqueaky Hinges

    We have some squeaky hinges and I don't want to use WD 40. I was thinking food oil but that would get rancid, no? What can I use on squeaky hinges that is safe for dogs?

    Personally, I wouldn't worry about using WD 40 ! What have you heard about the product that gives you concern ?

    It's not as if you are using a large quantity when you oil a hinge with it ?

    I haven't heard anything but with Spike's health concerns the fewer chemicals I can use, the better

    Hmmm I guess olive oi doesn't get rancid....
    Olive oil can actually be used as a lubricant in many applications. It's safe to keep around the house, so you don’t have to worry about children or pets getting into it. Try it out on squeaky doors, hinges and anywhere else you might consider using WD-40 or another lubricant. While WD-40 may work well, it's also based on hydrocarbons, so anytime we can use less of those we're taking a step toward a cleaner world

    WD40 is basically fish oil - if worried about the airborn issue - spray outside on brush/q-tip, uit will not hurt him!
