Type of grease for door hinges?

Alot of parts on my car, including the door hinges, trunk hinges etc need to be greased. What type of stuff does honda use to grease them? I'm looking to get some.

Ok. What is the original stuff that is used? Just white grease? It has to be something that repels water.

^^^^Good stuff right there. The door on my dad's dakota kept sticking and to open it the whole way it felt like you were bending the hinge. Put some of that stuff on there and worked it in...smooth as butter.

I also work at Honda. Some guys use white lithium grease as mentioned abve. Recently though, alot of guys have gone to using silicon spray lube, it just keeps things a little cleaner and doesnt leave white residue on the hinges, etc like the lithium. Hope this helps.

I use white lithium. Shoot it wherever, its good stuff. Yeah it could be a little messy, but its greese, just wipe up any over spray. Let me know how that other stuff works out if thats what you end up picking up.
