Door hinge lubricant

What does everyone use? I dont need a penetrating oil, I can get them off, but they dont come easy. THinking about just using plain old grease, but I dont want it to run down the door when it gets rained on. ANy suggestions?

White lithium grease is what I use. Apply once when you take off doors for the summer, you should be good to go. Doesn't take much.

^this. One little dab on each pin. A small tube should last a lifetime.

I use Bostik Never-Seez (regular grade) due to the fact it doesn't wash off easily, takes extreme heat to 1800 degrees, resists corrosion, rust and meets Mil spec. Multiple automotive and other uses.

Works on bolts throughout that you want to be able to take out in the future without rusting or corroding in place. Helps keep polybushings from squeeking too.

I use white lithium on almost everything. Didn't know about this stuff. Have to check it out.

I cover the bottom hole of each hinge with a napkin then spray a dose, it swirls the inside nicely. I dont bother with the pins. But im sure that works too.
