If you also hate Mondays, like Garfield, then you might just need a win. If you're eager to see those tiles flash green, you can find the solution below:

The answer to today's Wordle is: HINGE.

The hinge is the unsung hero of the home. Hinges are the little metal mechanisms that allow your door to swing open, preventing you from banging into them all the time like a cartoon character. Hinge is also the name of a popular dating app because, as they sing in Frozen 2, love is an open door. That's probably the reason, anyway. Hopefully we didn't start an argument with your partner by making you search 'popular dating apps' on the internet.

To avoid starting arguments yourself, make sure you keep today's Wordle solution a secret. Everyone has their own Wordle routine, and a friend or family member may be waiting to puzzle it out in the evening, so don't ruin the solution for others.

The door might be closed on today's Wordle, but there's another puzzle right around the corner. If you want to prepare for tomorrow's Wordle, get some practice by checking out our guide on the best Wordle starting words. When tomorrow rolls around, make sure you use our list of past Wordle answers so that you don't guess words that have already appeared previously.
