Great stuff for the weatherstripping around vehicle doors as it keeps the material from sticking to the door jambs. Also give the window tracks a shot where the window rides up and down. I put a couple of drops on the vehicle key and insert it into the door locks and twist to keep it lubricated as well as the ignition switch. Of course people will have different experiences so YMMV. With winter approaching, this is a good time to do this. Don't over apply.

Silicone. I believe white lithium for the hinges.

My belt drive chamberlain unit had a large red warning sticker on it when I installed it that said "do not add any grease or lube to the belt or sprocket"

I know it says to use for hinges, almost all my doors squeak inside. Is there any concern using the lithium grease spray indoor? I’m referring to the fume? One door I get, but if I have to lube like 5-10 doors.

So far I’ve only been using it for garage door.

If you are referring to the doors inside your home, I get the best and longest lasting results using oil. Almost any type like 3 in one for example. I don't use sprays; they tend to over spray on to surfaces where you do not want them to go. Here's what works for me. With the door open and hinges exposed apply a drop of oil (just a drop) at top of hinge below the head of the pin, then a tiny amount at each pivot point on the hinge. Do this on each hinge. Swing the door several times to work the oil into the hinge. Remove any excess oil with a rag or paper towel appropriately disposing of it. Check the floor and clean up any oil that may have dripped on to it. Over time the oil will seep through the hinge. Check it again a day or two later and remove any excess. The door should stay quite for a long time. Good luck.

Read a trick a few years back about using Pledge for inside door hinges. My doors squeaked terribly and was about to use some oil but looked onlne for tips. Oil can be problematic since it can collect dust and form a buildup over time that can stain wood and whatever brushes against it.

Silicone spray is cleaner but if you get it on the paint or wood it could make subsequent repaints give you swirls and fisheyes.

Pledge is simply a wax so no stains and all my doors are going on 3 years (the bathroom doors started making noise this year so I resprayed them). Of course try not to get the spray everywhere (I took a sheet of paper and scissors and made a quick cut as a template and it worked well. Good luck!
