Squeaky doors and sticky drawers can benefit from a quick fix, courtesy of an old candle. Silence a door by removing the pins from the hinges of the offending door, then rubbing a paraffin candle over the pins. Replace the door, reinstall the pins, and then open and close the door a few times to evenly distribute the wax. For stubborn drawers, rub the candle along the runners, and then slide them in and out to spread the wax.
