My antique bed frame is squeaky, what can I use?

Squeaky Bed Frames

A squeaky antique bed frame can become bothersome. Adding oil to the rivets should quiet it down. WD-40 is one oil to use.

WD-40 will usually work for a little while. The "WD" stands for Water Dispersing, there is actually not much oil in WD-40. Hardware stores have many different oils that are better in the long run.
