Have you tried a spray can of white lithium grease? It's not
permanent, but it may last a while longer on your house's door hinge
than WD40. Note: there appear to be two varieties, the thin stuff
that doesn't last long on car door hinges, that's now sold by some
auto parts stores, and the heavy thick stuff that one sprays on car
door and hood hinges, etc.
