For that matter, don't use any sort of oil on locks. If you have to use anything, use graphite powder.

Try grease or heavy gear oil, that will really attract dirt. I like WD-40 or 3-in-1 oil for my bike specially because it doesn't last.

3-in-1 oil will attract dirt and dust just as bad as WD-40. And for matter, so will any other type of oil or grease. For locks you can use graphite powder, for door hinges the natural polishing action of using them is enough.
