This lubricant works !

By 

from Rustburg, VA

Comments about WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner and Protectorant:

Must have several cans around ! I especially like the newer "smart straw" cans. Never lose that little straw again. And the small WD40 "pens" are a musthave for hinges, small places, anywhere you need lubricant and don't want overspray or any to drip or run.

Another one of those products that you must have on hand!

By 

from Boca Raton, FL

Comments about WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner and Protectorant:

We have been married for over 40 years, and I cannot remember a time when we didn't have a can of Wd-40 in our home.  Back in the days when we lived in Northern Indiana, we used it to unfreeze frozen automobile locks.  Now, retired in Florida, we use for lubricating the sliding glass door frames, as well as to clean up our greasy grimey tools in the garage.  I agree with another reviewer that this product is very good to remove tough stains.  The smell can be overpowering, but then, you use it sparingly.  It can be sprayed on your hands to remove paint -- but you then need to go ahead and wash your hands with soap and water to remove the WD-40.  There are a lot of uses for this product, and there are probably a number that many of us have not even thought of yet.  Try it ... you will like it.

Has a multitude of uses.

By 

from Brevard, NC

Comments about WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner and Protectorant:

My family has been using this product for many years.  My dad is 85 years old and has been using it as long as I can remember.  I use it for everything from taking black marks off the kitchen floor to removing the adhesive that remains when you try to remove a price sticker.  I even keep a can under my kitchen sink.

From lubricating almost anything to catching catfish WD40 works

By 

from Vincennes, IN

Comments about WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner and Protectorant:

    I have been using WD40 longer than I can even remember and the things I use it for you won't believe. I have a can in my garage, in my truck and in my tackle box. Tackle box you ask, well let me tell you one of the more unique uses for this great product.    I usually just spray some on a worm and let it fly, catfish love it. Well let's just say that all fish have a great sense of smell and sense catfish are scavengers the smell wakes them up quick. I have caught many a large catfish using WD40, my largest to date is a 45l. blue catfish. You only need to spray a little on there and it will last about 30 minutes. Although it may not be environmentally correct to use an oil based product in water it does in fact work very well.    Now let's look at some more typical uses for WD40:    WD40 works great at repelling water so if you have any problems with moisture on your vehicle this is the product for you. It will keep moisture from entering electrical devices under the hood as well. I have used it inside the distributor cap on my truck as I don't drive around puddles I go through them. You can also use it on your catch assembly on your hood to keep it working smoothly. Every oil change I also lube the entire truck so I also use WD40 to spray on all the grease fittings, as well as the brake bleeder screws. Why you ask, well let me tell you. Although you may never need to replace a grease fitting, or bleed your brakes. If they have been maintained you can save yourself not only a lot of hassle breaking them free after they have been neglected. You will also save money because you didn't strip one out or even break it trying to remove it.    Around the house you can spray a little on door hinges to keep them from squeeking, on drawer slides to keep them working smooth. You can also make that sliding glass door work just a little smoother. I don't mean on the bottom where it slides either. What you do is look for a little (about 3/8 of an inch round) button on the bottom of your door. Use a small screwdriver to pry it off, then spray WD40 in the hole. This is where the roller wheel hides that makes the door slide open and closed. Do this about every 3 months and that door will work like a charm for many years to come.    Got gum stuck on your shoes, spray a little WD40 on it and soften it up and it will come right off. Just about anything that has a hinge, spring or slide bolt can use WD40 to keep it working smooth. Have padlocks on your shed or gate outside? WD40 sprayed in the keyhole will keep it from rusting. After you use your garden tools, spray a little WD40 on a rag and wipe them down. It will keep your tools looking much better. Use it on the track of your garage door where it has roller wheels to move up and down, it will help reduce the wear on them. Outdoor water spigots can use a light spray to keep them turning smooth.    In closing I will honestly say that just like duct tape WD40 has 1001 uses around the house. Just remember not to spray it on painted surfaces as it will ruin the paint. Although your pets make squeak, it's not for pets either! It's not expensive but in the long run it can save you money. Try some today and see what new uses you can come up with.**Update:**Thanks to a fellow reviewer [OldHippie][1] I am posting a link that lists over 2000 uses for WD-40**http://www.wd40.com/files/pdf/wd-40_2042538679.pdf   I hope you enjoy!**

Good Stuff to Have Around

By 

from Easley, SC

Comments about WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner and Protectorant:

I've used WD40 for years and wouldn't use anything else! I've tried other brands and they don't seem to work as well!! It is a good all around lubricant and protector! I've even used it to "unrust" my pliers!!! Once I sprayed it on the pliers and let it set for a few hours, I was able to get them working again! That saved me money since I didn't have to buy a new pair! I always keep WD40 within reach to use for many different household projects!

Is there an alternative product to wd40?

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner and Protectorant:

I have used the WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner, and Protectorant way back when i was a young kid. I sprayed a ton of it on my bicycle chain to keep it riding smooth. I believed i actually liked the smell back then. I can not think of an alternative product that is known and is just like the WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner, and Protectorant. Around the garage this is what is used to stop all the annoying squeaks that may arise.

I use the wd40 with the straw that is attached to the spray mechanism. This version is definitely a lot better than the old version. You can't lose the straw. I had a sticker on the paint my car that was not exactly level and centered so i started to peel it off but it was stuck on there pretty good. I used the WD40 on it after i read that this doesn't harm the car paint and takes off sticker and the residue pretty easy. It did it with ease and not a single scratch on the paint.

Necessary for any home

By 

from Memphis, TN

Comments about WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner and Protectorant:

This is a must-have for every home/apartment/anywhere you live. We have one in our apartment and one in our car. Squeaky things drive me crazy, so this really helps with my sanity. :) My husband also uses it when he changes the brakes in our car, or pretty much fixing anything in the car. It is a great product. I love that some of them come with a little straw so you can have more focused spraying instead of it getting everywhere. But one pointer, is that if you don't have some of this on hand, you can use some cooking spray. It doesn't work as well, but it works if you odn't have wd 40 on hand. It's a great product. We seriously have like 4 cans of it and I am so glad that we have all of those.

WD-40

By 

from Hazel Crest, IL

Comments about WD40 Aerosol Lubricant, Cleaner and Protectorant:

This product is a must for every household. WD-40 has so many uses and is just great to have laying around the house. It can loosing up those tough bolts on any door hinge or car or anything that your trying to use it on. Not only does it help loosing but you can soak the bolts down so you make sure they never get that tight and lock up again. Its also good for those annoying squeaking noises from any door in the house. Its good too lubricate tools such as wreches and pliers also. The only bad thing i can say about this product is that smell. I dont think anyone likes the smell WD-40 gives off. It is pretty strong but is bearable. It can be found at any store even a gas station. Overall i would recommend this product, it is a must in every home.
