WD-40
5 Surprising Uses for WD-40
Who doesn’t have a can of WD-40 around the house? But if you’re using it just to stop squeaks and cut through rust, you’re missing out on a lot of other good uses including cutting through grease.

Try spraying a greasy tool with a little WD-40 — you don’t need much, just a little bit — and then wipe it off. What you’ll find is it’ll cut right through that grease, no problem at all.

Got some grease on your hands? Same thing — spray a little WD-40; it’s a pretty mild solvent, but it’ll cut through a lot. It doesn’t harm your hands at all.

WD-40 is also great for many other common uses. You can use it to remove tar and bugs that are stuck to your car — it won’t harm the paint at all.

If you have kids who have drawn on the walls with crayons, spray a little WD-40 and wipe it with a soft cloth. Don’t worry about it harming or dissolving the paint.

Also, if you have a sticky residue when you peel off a sticker from a surface, and it always leaves some of that glue behind, spray it with some WD-40 and wipe it. You’ll see it comes right off!

So next time you grab a can of WD-40, remember it’s good for a lot more than squeaky hinges.

  1. Joe,

    Enjoyed your video about WD-40.

    But I was reminded of the old saying;
    “If it moves and it’s not supposed to, use Duct Tape. If it doesn’t move and it’s supposed to, use WD-40.”

    PS:
    Danny,
    Lori wants you to come by and do a show about making our backyard into a mini-paradise in the city.

  2. The cement on the entrance of my garage door has chipped away on both sides of the iron rod support and so it leaks moisture. I have re-cemented it several times but it crumbles right away. Last winter it froze shut so hard the door would not open. Is there a way to fix it permanently? The driveway and garage floor are in pretty good shape except for this. Thank you. Sure enjoy your show.
