WD-40 removes, protects, & loosens so many things. It contains silicone which is one of the things that makes this so special. My dad owns a body shop and he was the first person who introduced it to me. I thought I would share a few ways I use it with you...
Use it to loosen door handles & locks.
Got a door or lock that is sticking or not running smoothly? Squirt a little WD-40 onto it, wipe up the excess, and as you start wiggling the lock and handle it'll loosen right up and run smooth again.
Stop a squeaky door
Spray some on the hinges, wipe up the excess, open and close the door a few times, and the squeak will disappear.
Wipe away greasy fingerprints
Spray a little on your doors or other surfaces with grease on them, and wipe away those greasy fingerprints and surfaces.
Loosen tough scissors and tools
If your scissors get sticky residue in them and they are having a hard time opening and closing or sticking closed, spray a little on the scissors, wipe up the excess, and start wiggling them - they'll free right up. This works great on tools as well - pliers, garden shears, etc.
Moisturize and make your shoes weather resistant
Spray a little on a cloth and wipe on your shoes. It will clean them, moisturize them, and make them weather resistant.
Keep Bugs Out
Spray a little around the base of your house outside and it'll repel the bugs from coming into your home.
Ever get a sprayer that you cannot get off your hose? Spray a little into the threads, give it a couple minutes, and then start to twist. It'll loosen it up and you'll be able to twist it right off.
Get bugs off of glass easy...
Spray a little WD-40 onto your bug splattered glass, use a cloth and they'll rub right off.
*A special note from my husband - it's fantastic at getting tar off your car too right after they have resurface a road.
Keep soap scum off your shower doors
Clean your shower and then spray the glass with WD-40 and wipe on. It'll create a barrier that will stop soap scum from forming on your glass.
Clean your stainless steel
Spray it on your stainless steel and use a microfiber cloth to wipe it in. It cleans it right up!
Keep clay and mud from sticking to your shovels
Spray a little on your shovel, it'll not only clean your shovel but it'll keep the dirt from clumping onto your shovel as you continue your work.
Remove sticky label residue, glue, tape
Spray it on and use a scraper to scrub it right off of bottles. Works great to remove tape residue as well.
Got hot glue stuck to something that you need to remove, or perhaps some school glue or other sticky substance? Spray a little on the surface, let it sit for a minute, and then use a cloth to wipe the residue away. For the hot glue, it just picked right off with no trouble.
Spray some over the crayon on your door, table, and more and use a microfiber cloth to wipe it off.
