It is regarded as a perfect product that can be used for cleaning tools of metals and iron, lubricating sticky wheels or drawers that have become hard, preventing rust due to long term exposure of air and moisture, removing paint and cleaning, and stopping creaking. Cleaning every week will help avoid allergies or other breathing problems. To your surprise, there are a lot more uses of WD-40 that can potentially make your life simpler and easier. Best uses for WD-40 range from preparing your car for chilly weather to keeping away annoying bugs away from your garden. Cleaning up spills, vacuuming your carpets, and keeping your kitchen and bathroom clean will kill germs. The list includes some prominent uses that you must know. Let’s dive into the applications of this multi-purpose product you would surely save your time and money.
Let’s begin with defrosting the ice
When frost in cold regions builds up over a long period of time, it starts to smell bad and interrupt the
functionality of machines. The most frustrating thing that people in cold areas experience is winter colds and ice
that accumulates over their belongings. As they wake up early in the morning they have to warm the car up and remove
the ice that is accumulated on the windows. And they know defrosting is an essential maintenance job.
If you are also facing this problem, then WD-40 can do your job quickly. You just have to spray down each window and
clean the excess product. This will remove all the dirt and clean your windows. Surprisingly simple hack, isn’t it?
This works really well and there will not be any ice accumulated on the windows. Now you can get to sleep a little
bit more and feel fresh throughout the day.
Crayon marks will be super cleaned in a few seconds!
Are your children decorating the walls with their crayons? If yes, then you must be facing a lot of trouble while
cleaning the walls, floor and cupboards. Drying this stain will set it perhaps permanently. So what can you
actually do? There’s a powerful solution to the stains and their removal.
Use WD-40 and spray it over the marks. The solvents in WD-40 help to break down oil—especially old oily
stains—loosening the oil and waxy molecules, so effective for cleaning or around the home. It can also displace
dust, dirt, grease, grime, and almost anything. So, let your child show his artistry. WD-40 is ready to wipe and
Are Chewing gums sticking to your shoes? Here’s a way to get rid of it
When chewing gums come into contact with oily surfaces, such as sidewalks, soles of shoes, fingers, and hair, they
form a strong bond and stick tight. So whenever you walk on the street, it happens that sometimes you see our sole
stuck with the sticky gum. It’s very frustrating and irritating. One of the primary methods that you can use for the
purpose of removing chewing gum from your shoes is the use of ice.
The rubbers used as gum bases are not soluble in water. And that is the reason they don’t leave your shoe when water
is applied. The solution is here. Simply spray the gum with some WD-40 Multi-Use Product, wait a few minutes to
let it work its magic, and wipe away. Alternatively, use a scrub brush to gently scrub the gum out.
Polish Fishing Lures
If you think, you are a fishing enthusiast, surprisingly WD-40 will help you catch so many fishes. This product
cannot be used as bait though, but you can surely use it to polish lures. This will make them shine more and attract
the fish community. Ultimately help you in fishing. Interesting, indeed.
Warning! Beware that this product is made out of many artificial and strong chemicals. It contains naphtha
(petroleum), petroleum-based oils, 1, 2, 4-trimethyl benzene, 1, 3, 5-trimethyl benzene, xylene, mixed isomers and
carbon dioxide. This is chemically very toxic. The WD-40 that you will spray, can cause marine animals to die. And
so it is not recommended due to its toxicity and non-environment friendly.
No More Jams in a Lawn Mower
The more you get your lawn cut, the more healthy grass shoots you will have which results in a more lush and healthy
lawn over time. Lawnmowers are widely used around the world for chopping, trimming or mowing grass
patches, fields, lawns and gardens. Even if you buy the best lawn mower for your lawn, you will always find a chance
that chunks of grass will get stuck to the bottom and jam the entire system.
This causes a big inconvenience as you have to shut down the mower and scrape out the chunks of grass by hand. Then,
it’s again the WD-40 that will help you get your mower clean and free of chunks. Just spray it with the product
before and after each use.
Protect Bird Feeders
Bird feeders often are used for bird watching and many people keep webcams trained on feeders
where birds often congregate, with some even living just near the bird feeder. Especially for people who live near
the woods often place bird feeders in their backyards to see nature, its habits and actions from their kitchen
window or living room. Squirrels may also help themselves to the contents of bird feeders, often not merely
feeding, but carrying away the food to their hoard. There are various anti-squirrel techniques and devices
available to thwart attempts by squirrels to raid bird feeders.
Birds at feeders risk predation by cats and other animals or may incur injury by flying into windows. The placement
of a bird feeder can also prevent squirrels from accessing the seed. Simply spraying WD-40 down the centre pole can
make bird feeder squirrel-proof. This will prevent squirrels from climbing up.

When you have to work hard to make scissors cut, it’s time to have them sharpened. If the rust is
causing the scissors to stick or if they are difficult to move, spray WD-40 onto the fulcrum. Lastly,
spray a small amount of WD-40 Multi-Use Product around the joint area where the two blades are hinged to facilitate
the scissors’ operation.
Goodbye beverage stains
Most brown soft drinks are simply a tannin stain caused by a plant component that shows up as a colour on
fabrics and carpets. But when a beverage falls on your party wear, it’s the most devastating feeling. And if that

Cleaning the filters is a tough job. Again, WD-40 sprays are there to support you. Spray a little amount of WD-40 on
the dust and clean it with a cloth. The steal and metal plating is super shiny now. Enjoy cool air with cleanliness

Mildews removed easily
Mildew refers to a certain kind of fungus. While Mildew is not as dangerous to your health nor is it as
damaging to your home, mildew should still be taken seriously and it’s important to remove it as quickly as possible
in order to prevent adverse health effects and/or cosmetic damage to your home.
There are ways to remove it, you can use WD-40 to get rid of hidden pockets of mildew. Mildew can grow on any organic
matter, including the wood, wall, and wallpaper, and is caused by humidity and moisture. During the damp winter
months, when the heating goes full blast and the windows stay shut, mildew can flourish. Spray some WD-40 and get
these mildews out of your house.
Bye bye tar stains
When you’re attempting tar stain removal, remember that there is more than one type of tar, which includes pine tar,
coal tar and birch tar, etc. This tar stain removal technique involves a bit of store-bought cleaning solution,
along with some rubbing alcohol. Is that true? We have some simple solutions for you.
No need to spend so much time rubbing and using harsh chemicals. Spray WD-40 on the area, wait for a while and remove
it with a sponge. You have a super clean surface. Effortlessly things are done right. Aren’t you happy and satisfied
with many applications of WD-40? I know, you are happy.
Waterproof chalk art
Many other Old Masters used chalk, including Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Michelangelo Buonarroti, as well as
Northern Renaissance artists such as Albrecht Durer and Rembrandt. Later, other famous painters used chalk either
for finished drawings or sketches. And if you are also a chalk artist this one is for you.
Chalk was principally used by artists adhering to traditional art styles but also by such avant-garde painters. Make
a beautiful chalk painting on the pavement. After you are done with the work, spray some WD-40 on your work and let
it dry. It will become a permanent picture. Amazing, isn’t it?
Get your zippers unstick
A zipper is a sliding fastener. The zipper was invented in 1917, but it was initially called a “zip.” At
the time, a zipper was a particular type of boot that zipped closed. If you find yourself at the losing end of a
stuck zipper, what can we do? Oiling can be a method but it will make your stuff dirty.
Use the nozzle to direct the flow of the spray. Let the zipper’s pull foam up and then start gently moving the zipper
back and forth. When you are slowly working the spray into the inner parts, the zipper will be moving smoothly again
as it did, when you bought it from the market.
Lego pieces can be assembled and connected in many ways to construct objects, including vehicles, buildings, and
working robots. Anything constructed can be taken apart again, and the pieces reused to make new things. If you
want the Legos creation to last long, we have this super spray for your amazing work.
Moulded in a thermoplastic polymer, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, Legos are known for their durability, which

Keeps Your Records from Skipping
These rare albums are probably worth more than your entire collection. Some are classics that never
get old, others are records to throw on at a party. Record collections are again gaining some
popularity in this age of digital music. Scratches can cause the skipping of some valuable records. How can you let
Now, again it’s time to call WD-40. Spray and lubricate the surface with WD-40. Let it rest there for a while and
then clean it with tissue paper. What is the result? You will have all the records safe and it also helps the

Retain Leather Furniture
Leather can be produced from the skin of any animal. Throughout history, many types of leather have
been made across times, regions, and through different methods. Formaldehyde, cyanide, lead, and chromium are all
used in different tanneries around the world, and these dangerous toxins are released into waterways during the
You can use the spray to retain their softness and durability. It must be protected from heat, direct sunlight and
chemicals. One of the most effective home remedies for leather is WD-40. Cleaning your leather furniture with
the spray can keep them new for a long time. Less effort and more results.
It Helps Separate Glassware
Most commonly, glasses get stuck together when they are stacked immediately after they are washed. Glass expands
when heated, and contracts as it cools, and this is sufficient to stick glasses together in some cases. Let glasses
cool before you stack them. Here we provide you with an easy trick to separate the glasswares.
Do not pull the glass with too much force as you may break it. As the ring gets loosed, you can spray WD-40 on
glasses and this helps to create an air gap between glasses. Now you can slowly remove the stuck parts without
breaking them. What more amazing thing than this? (But you want to wash those glasses before using them.)
Your most-worn rings, necklaces, and other jewellery pieces may only need to be polished from time to time, but any
fine silver that is left on display or tucked inside jewellery boxes may require a more intensive clean, especially
since the chemical reaction from air and light exposure causes silver to tarnish.
Spray the WD-40 on silver. It removes the outer layer of metal. This method actually removes the tarnish while
leaving the silver intact. Polishing silver once a year should be enough to keep it in good condition. You
can safely do this as often as 2-6 times in a year.
New look for your faded plastic furniture
There are a variety of reasons for plastic to fade. Most fading is a result of oxidization, which causes the
plastic to wear down and develop a rougher texture. Plastic that has faded to a yellow or brown colour was made with
bromine, which causes the plastic to change colour over time.
If you’ve got a can of WD-40 Multi-Use Product in the garage, your plastic-cleaning problems are solved. Spray
WD-40 on each portion of your old dirty plastic. Let it rest for few minutes and then wash it off with water or you
can also wipe it out with cloth. Long-handled, soft-bristled cleaning brushes help to remove the oxidation.
No more bugs on your car grill
If your butterfly is freshly dead, but you can’t get to it right away, put it in a glassine envelope and pop it in
the freezer for a few days until you can get to it. The freezer will keep it fresh. But if you find bugs on car
grille, there’s a simple method to get it cleaned.
Spray some WD-40 multipurpose product inside your car floor, windows, and on the doors of your car, and
wipe it all down with a towel. This will keep your vehicle looking new and shiny and help remove insects from your
car. Polish and clean your car out regularly to get rid of those creepy-crawling insects from it.
Remove old wax
Don’t leave the wax on too long before buffing. It simply becomes harder to buff out. If this happens, you can easily
correct it by applying another thin coat of wax, removing the excess, and waiting a more appropriate amount of time
before buffing. If you fine old wax getting accumulated, what can you do?
Now, here you do again. Spray our magical product, WD-40 on wax. Apply the liquid to the wax finish in the direction
of the grain and rub gently to remove the wax build up. Rinse immediately by wiping with a rag dampened with plain
water and then dry. Amazing cleaning done.
Detangle Fishing Lines
Slack fishing line is a big culprit when it comes to line tangles. As you reel in slack line, this creates loose
coils on your spool. When you cast, these loose coils will come off the spool quickly compared to the line around
it, causing the coils to overlap on themselves as they leave the reel and tangle up.
Some fishermen use WD-40 to clean their reels, others spray it on their fishing line. WD40 will
not hurt your fishing line in any way shape or form. I use it all the time. It keeps the line soft and
helps prevent wind knots. Some people do use it as an attractant, though. There’s nothing to prove that it works or
doesn’t work as a fish attractant.
Over time, a build-up of barnacles can result in increased drag, which means reduced fuel efficiency as your
engine needs to work harder to keep up a proper speed. Barnacles can grow to a wide variety of sizes—most will just
be one or two centimetres wide, but some can grow to seven centimetres or more.
WD-40 is the registered name of a spray that has water displacement properties and is also lubricating oil. Spray the
area generously with WD-40, wait a few seconds, and then use a putty knife to scrape off the barnacles. Spray
any remnants with WD-40 and scrape again. If necessary, use sandpaper to get rid of all of the remnants and
corrosive glue still left by the barnacles.
Lipstick stains gone
It is actually easy to appear gorgeous with some bright and bold lips. But the trouble starts after the
application! Let’s get rid of that lipstick smudge. What makes lipsticks so sticky and
difficult to remove? Lip stains and dry lips are like oil and vinegar; they do not mix.
This might sound like an unfamiliar remedy to remove the lipstick smudges. All you would need to do is to place the
stain part of the shirt on a paper towel, and spray WD-40 on the stain from behind. You should see the stain
magically start to fade. Get your original shirt again.
Kill thistle plants
Thistle plants are ready to spew thousands of seeds to continue their spread. These thistles, musk and plume less
thistles, are invasive, noxious weeds that take over entire fields and render the land useless to native
wildlife and plants. Or said another way, there is no poisonous true thistle, but not all of them are
WD-40 is not a good weed killer because it was not designed to kill weeds. WD-40 can harm the aboveground
portion of plants but does not enter the plant’s system and kill the roots. Don’t let pesky prickly weeds like bull
and Russian thistle ruin your yard or garden. Just spray some WD-40 on them and they’ll wither and die.
Amazing rust remover
Rust can cause the metal parts to get stuck when they are supposed to slide over each other. Rusty car mufflers and
the outer bodies of the car can develop holes in them due to rust. It affects the magnetic properties of a
metal. Corrosion of iron is a serious problem as it negatively affects iron’s desirable properties, which
loses its strength and finally becomes unfit for further use.
WD-40 for rust removal is one of the best rust treatments as it is so simple and quick.
First, spray the rusted item with WD-40 Multi-Use Product. You will need to ensure that you use enough to
soak the area then allow it to sit for 10 minutes. It breaks down the bond between the metal and the rust. Use
a wire brush to remove the rust from the item.
Price tags and sticker removal
Stickers are everywhere. We get name tag stickers at meetings; we get stickers when we vote, and kids get stickers
for everything. You can remove sticker or decal residue pretty easily with pre-wash treatments
and regular laundry detergent. If you find sticker residue on a washed article of clothing, always make sure
the stain is completely removed before putting the item in the dryer—once it has dried out, the residue will be much
harder to remove.
Spray some WD-40 Multi-Use Product onto the sticker. Once applied, let the formula sit for several minutes and then
use a clean rag to wipe away the unwanted residue. Then, slowly start peeling the sticker away from the car’s
surface. In addition, WD-40 works as a fantastic remover for any adhesive left behind after taking a
sticker off of both glass and paint.
Shovel work made easier
Shovel is a tool used to dig as well as to move loose, granular materials (like dirt, gravel, grain, or
snow) from one spot to another. Spade is a tool used for digging straight-edged holes or trenches, slicing and
lifting sod, and edging flower beds or lawns. When using a shovel, a person is lifting and twisting their body which
can place a person at risk for disc compressions and strain injuries.
The most common injuries are bumps, bruises, cuts and broken bones. The lower back, head, arms and hands are
injured most often. The best product to lubricate garden tools is WD-40. Thanks to its fasting acting and
unique formula. This will prolong the life of your garden tools ensuring efficient performance every single time.
As time goes on, the seals connecting all the layers together start to break down. Once this happens, the argon is
released, and regular air gets in with moisture. As the moisture evaporates over and over, it leaves smudges
and dirt on the inside of the layers of glass where you aren’t able to clean.
Steam, grease, and other particulates that result from cooking will find their way to the windows and build
up over time, which can making the glass there especially difficult to clean. Spray some WD-40 multi-use product on
your window and wipe it off. This will also help remove any residue from stickers or adhesives.
No More Wasp Nests
Treating a wasp nest can be very dangerous. Wasps inside the nest will feel threatened and often become
aggressive. This could cause them to sting you and others as they defend their nest resulting in multiple stings.
Unlike bees, wasps do not die after one sting, they can, and will, sting you quite a few times!
WD-40 works as an effective bug and insect repellent. To keep wasps from returning, spray any former wasp next spots
with WD-40. While many commercial products exist to exterminate wasps, a product commonly found in most garages or
homes will also do the trick. WD-40 helps to effectively kill and prevent wasps from nesting around your
Cracked phone screens fixation
A cracked phone screen is a fire hazard for a start, and secondly you could be exposing yourself to radiation.
Even the Samsung Health and Safety Warranty Guide states that if your phone screen becomes compromised you should
stop using the device as it could cause injury. Damaged phone screens are also susceptible to finger oils, dust
and debris working their way inside the cracks, which can further damage the phone through time.
Toothpaste is mildly abrasive and could, in the right conditions, remove the surface of the screen and make
the scratches less visible. All you have to do is spray it onto the screen and wipe it off with a dry and clean
cloth. WD-40 can improve the appearance of your cracked screen.
Wow, clean toilets
One of the most common toilet problems is your toilet running constantly after flushing. When you
flush the toilet, water backs up into or comes up in the tub or shower. When your sewer line is clogged, the water
can’t go down the drain. Instead, it flows back up the pipes and comes out at the lowest point — usually
the shower drain. When you run water in the bathroom sink, the toilet bubbles and gurgles.
What to do with these issues? First, spray a small amount of WD-40 into the bowl, let it sit for a few minutes,
then scrub the stains or water lines with your toilet brush. After flushing your toilet, the stains should
disappear. When cleaning a toilet bowl, WD-40 works by softening the rust and lime deposits, so they can be easily
Cleaning tiles with a spray
How do you normally clean your tiles? Fill a bucket with hot water, a half cup of vinegar and a half tablespoon of

the mop head under hot running water to remove any debris from last time you used it. Mop the tile floors with soapy

paint and scuff marks from tile floors, and also helps wipe away grime from the grout lines. Spray a layer of WD-40
onto your tiles, let it sit for a few minutes, and merely wipe it down with a clean cloth.
