Default WD 40

Found this on another website and I thought you might find interesting

When you read the "shower door" part, try it. It'* the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass. It'* a miracle!

1.. Then try it on your stovetop... Voila! It'* now shinier than it'* ever been. You'll be amazed.
2.. Here are some of the uses:
3.. Protects silver from tarnishing.
4.. Removes road tar and grime from cars.
5.. Cleans and lubricates gui tar strings.
6.. Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making it slippery.
7.. Keeps flies off cows.
8.. Restores and cleans chalkboards.
9.. Removes lipstick stains.
10.. Loosens stubborn zippers.
11.. Untangles jewelry chains.
12.. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks.
13.. Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill.
14.. Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing.
15.. Removes tomato stains from clothing.
16.. Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots.
17.. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.
18.. Keeps scissors working smoothly.
19.. Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes.
20.. Gives a children'* play gym slide a shine for a super fast slide.
21.. Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on riding mowers.
22.. Rids kids rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises.
23.. Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open.
24.. Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close.
25.. Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as vinyl bumpers.
26.. Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles.
27.. Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans.
28.. Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling.
29.. Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running smoothly.
30.. Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools.
31.. Removes splattered grease on stove.
32.. Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.
33.. Lubricates prosthetic limbs.
34.. Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell).
35.. Removes all traces of duct tape.
36.. Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain.
37.. Florida'* favorite use is: "cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers."
38.. The favorite use in the state of New York--WD-40 protects the Statue of Libertyfrom the elements.
39.. WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a LITTLE on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time. Also, it'* a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just that purpose. Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.
40.. Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.
41.. WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.
42.. Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick spots with WD-40 and re-wash. Presto! Lipstick is gone!
43.. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start.
44.. It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor! Use WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn't seem to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard to get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.
45.. Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly! Use WD-40! P. *. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL

interesting. the vast majority of it is logical, knowing that its an oil and as such, oil-based. but that doesnt mean it occurs to everyone.

No, you're right. While WD-40 might be good for #'* 1 thru 45(and is, thus, more versitile), for bust'n loose rusty ol' nuts and bolts, PB Blaster is the only way to go.

I just sprayed some WD40 on my fuel filter fitting as well as the Gas tank mount bolts and the exhaust hanger bolts.


I'm Prepping for a tank to go in, so I guess Ill find out if it works on rusted bolts soon.

I dunno about that list. I think whoever wrote that will be laughing their *** off when you try half of that and wreck stuff.
