I sprayed some WD-40 on the hinges of some closet doors. They are French doors with slats.
I sprayed to eliminate the loud squeaking.
Of course now the doors will not stay closed. They glide open and stay that way. I have tried some "Goo Gone" in an effort to degrease the hinge but with no effect. I thought in time it would get better but it's been 3 months.
Any suggestion on how to somewhat reverse the lubrication in the hinge so that they stay closed would be appreciated.
The doors are painted including the hinges so I would rather not remove the doors and begin a big project.
Thanks for any help.
