Help! Black dust coming from door hinges
Does anyone else have this problem? All of my interior door hinges have fine black dust coming out of them. It stains the woodwork and doors.
Last year I removed all the doors, cleaned the pins and hinges, and everything was ok for a few months, but it started again.
I asked at Lowes and was told it was due to graphite and cheap hinges, but changing every hinge in the house is NOT a possibility. ( there are 26 doors).
I will try to clean the hinges again, and will coat the pins with a thin layer of vaseline to lubricate them.
Any other hints would be greatly appreciated.
