This is by far one of the most versatile product for solving all sorts of cleaning problems.

Many cleaning companies use this product and make everything look so easy for the persons who did not know that this was all they would need instead of paying for expensive cleaning services.

1. Clean Hard Water Stains From Shower Mixer

 

Just spray a small amount of WD-40 on limescale that has built up on your shower mixers over time and wait for about three minutes for it to soften. Use a toothbrush to scrub away all the now loosened grime and it will all strip off.

Then buff the surface with a microfiber cloth.

 

2. Remove crayon marks


WD-40 is great for dissolving crayon marks from all sorts of surfaces such as countertops, walls, fabrics and so much more. Just apply some the marked surface and rub it away with a cloth. Boom! Clean.

WD-40 will also remove marker and crayon from furniture and appliances!

3. Keep water stains off the glass shower doors.

Just spread some WD-40 on glass shower doors and the soapy grime and watermarks will not get a chance to build up.

4. Liftoff Stickers And Stuck-on Adhesive Easily.

First, you can just remove the excess of the label if it is not glued all around the label.

If the label is plastic-type, you con try spraying while lifting the label as it will not break. The plastic label should be easier to lift off than the paper ones.

When you have exposed the glued on an area of the label, spray it with WD-40 and leave it to soak for some time.

 Then use a sponge or scouring pad to scrub away the glue and paper residue.

5. Remove stuck rings on a finger

If for any reason a ring is on your finger and is stubborn to come off, spray some WD-40 on that finger and it will slide right off.

6. Remove tea and coffee stains from countertops

Wipe away tea and coffee stains from countertops with WD-40.
Spray a little WD-40 on a sponge or damp cloth and wipe the stain away.

7. Keep scissors working smoothly

Just spray a little in the joint area of the scissors, this will keep the scissors working smoothly.

8. Prevent snow buildup on windows

During winter the snow gets onto our cars and house windows and obscure our vision of the outside and can cause an accident while driving.

Prevent snow buildup on windows by glazing them with WD-40.

9. Remove chewing gum with ease

If chewing gum gets stuck on any cloth, rag, clothes, shoes or even your carpet. Spray some WD-40 on the gum and let it spread to the base of the gum.

Allow it to soak in a little bit and just lift off the gum. 

If there is any residue of gum you can use another rag of cloth to rub out the residue by adding a bit more WD-40 to it.

10. Waterproof shoes 

Spray WD-40 and spread it on your shoes to prevent water from seeping in during a wet season.

Not only does it create a waterproof barrier on shoes, but it will also help remove any salt stains on boots during the winter months.

Just spray onto the stains and wipe with a clean rag.

11. Limescale Remover

Remove all that limescale from your kitchen sink and face basins with just a touch of WD-40. Wet the area and it will soften in minutes, scrub away with scouring pad or toothbrush.

Note: Remember that with all these cool ideas, it is not advisable to inhale the fumes from this spray, especially as it appears in the concentrated form when it first exits the can. Cover nose if possible when using or walk away as soon as it is sprayed to prevent respiratory problems.

In the past, I had lost so many tools and expensive equipment as a result of the build-up of rust. Since learning about WD-40, I just have to say -“it’s not too shabby at all”  for a small can of spray that just cost 4 bucks!

All my gardening tools, pots and pans, stainless steel equipment, kitchen and bathroom faucets and so on are so clean and shiny! WD-40 does the trick!

  4. Very good to know. I use liters and liters of wd 40 in my job. Next time i’ll save one can for me.

          It is best to cover your nose when using this product. Or you may move from the area of concentration as soon as you can after using. The fumes are not healthy to inhale. Just like modern air fresheners, you should not consume too much of the concentrated fumes from any kind of product of this sort.

  5. Also cleans stainless steel refrigerators beautifully. And great for bee stings…take the pain right out.

  6. The name stands for WATER DISPLACEMENT 40! This is not really a great lubricant or water repellant.
    Although some of these hacks are valid, because the carrier solvent does a job, for true lubricant qualities, you should really buy a product that stats it contains “Silicone ”
    Like for example, to spray on shoes….
    Thank you
