The outside door handle squeeks when i pull on it. I have lubed it up with silicone spray and it works, but only for a few days then back to noise again.

Anyone using some specific brand of grease that will last?

Hehe... "lubricating" I have a suggestion, but I'm not sure how hygienic it may be. :huh?:

Maximus works ...

For the doors try a penetrating oil first, then either an aerosol or manually applied lithium grease to keep the water out and the oil in.

White grease? I wouldn't use that. it's messy and cakes to crap after a period of time. Not to mention all the dirt it collects.

Try a graphite spray, it's black and won't collect dirt.

On some things, the red labeled 'rust check' works great, it bubbles up and drips for about 10 seconds, then it thickens. Great stuff, I spray this on the bottoms of my doors, in locks, and hinges; as well as in places where salt may accumulate.

Good Luck!

try some auto tranny fluid, or motor cyle chain lube (castrol areosol can) both these not only lubricate, but keep dirt from building up
