This miracle substance has many uses and you will wish you had known some of these sooner.


Remove graffiti with a few bursts, rather than paying hundreds of dollars for a new paint job.

There's nothing worse than getting dog poo off your shoe. Spray some on the affected sole and then use an old toothbrush to get it off easy.

Spray a thin layer of WD-40 on a shovel blade and the snow will slide right off, making it easier to move the stuff.

You can also use the magic liquid to remove chewing gum from hair. Just spray some on and comb out with ease.

Stop wasps from building nests this Spring by spraying WD-40 under all the nooks and crannies of your house.

You can also spray it on bee, wasp, or hornet stings to relieve the pain. 

Winterproof boots and shoes by giving them a coat of WD-40. It'll act as a waterproof barrier.

You can even use the stuff to remove ugly salt-stains during the winter months. 

A short burst of WD-40 will convince a stuck ring to slide right off.

Remove decals and stickers easily with a few squirts of WD-40.

Instead of using expensive cleaning products, spray a little WD-40 in your bowl and swish with a nylon toilet brush to dissolve the gunk and lime.

Simply spray some WD-40 onto marker and crayon marks and wipe with a clean rag. It won't damage paint or most wallpaper.

This also works on upholstered furniture.

Spray WD-40 on leather furniture and buff with a soft cloth to clean, penetrate, lubricate, and protect the leather.

Spray some WD-40 on your grille and hood before going for a drive and most of the critters will slide right off.

The magic spray is also amazing for untangling wire.

You can get rid of stubborn grease stains with a few squirts too.

Spray a barbecue grill, wait a few seconds, and scrub with a wire brush to make it look like new.

When soap and water can’t get rid of old bits of food stuck on your fridge, spray a small amount of WD-40 on each resistant spot. Then wipe them away with a rag or sponge.

Spray carpet stains with WD-40, wait a minute or two, and then use your regular carpet cleaner to remove the stain with ease.

You can even give your license plate a new lease of life.

Or easily remove paint scuff marks from parking lot dings by spraying the magic stuff. They'll rub straight off.

Much like bolts, stubborn zippers can also be loosened using WD-40.

And you can spray the wooden handles of tools to keep them splinter-free.

To remove tea and coffee stains from counter tops, spray a little WD-40 on a sponge or damp cloth and wipe the stain away.

Remove tough scuff marks from hard-surfaced floors. Just spray some on the floor and you won't have to put in nearly as much elbow grease.

Squirt some WD-40 to separate sticky glassware. Make sure to wash them thoroughly before use.

And to top it all off, WD-40 makes excellent insect repellent.

WD-40 really is the answer to all of life's problems.

Spray down bird feeders to keep out squirrels. They'll slide right off.

Reminds me of "EverybodyHate"Chris mother using a blue spray to cure anything.

#4 - Small township in NE Ohio (I forget the name... was just passing thru) has signs out in residential neighborhoods stating that any use of any petroleum-based product on any implement to move and/or remove snow/ice is strictly forbidden and subject to a $2500 fine.

WD40 must really work great or city hall wouldn't be using it as a way to increase revenue!

Yeah, it's petroleum-based.

@LOLMASTER500 Actually, it does. It contains <25% petroleum base oil, presumably a mineral oil or light lubricating oil. - wikipedia

Arx.... WD40 is basically just oil. So you remove the ice problem with oil and create an entirely new issue. an OIL SLICK.
This says to put on the SHOVEL. Not the entire drive way... People are stupid...

To whom...
Have known WD40 since the 70s... and have always assumed it was petroleum based. If it ain't petroleum then... there's something out there that kicks mechanical butt, no doubt.
Like duct tape... it's the tool that outweighs the fool.

Thanks for the replies :)
