I was skeptical, but desperate, so I dug into my son's lunch stash and grabbed a few slices and found the worst offender, our pantry door.
First I rubbed on the inside of the hinge.
Then I rubbed on the outside hinge.
I opened and closed the door a few times and voila! The squeak was gone! I couldn't believe it! I then ran around and checked all the other doors in our house. Only four had any squeak at all, and now every door is blissfully silent!
You'll want to bring a rag with you because the cucumber will drip. If you have crisp white doors like ours, you'll want to avoid cucumber grime spot marks. You can see what I mean in the above photo.
I really wish I would have taken a video because you will have to try this yourself to hear how well it works!
So the next time you have some cucumbers to spare--or want to use them up before they go bad--make a quick pass around your house and enjoy the sound of squeak-free silence.
