Five New Uses for WD-40
Yes, this miracle product does more than fix squeaky hinges on doors! Most of us have a can of WD-40 laying around the house, but don’t know some of the incredible things that it can do. Here are our five favorite uses for this product.
- Clean off chewing gum
Next time you have gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe, or heaven forbid, in someone’s hair, you can clean it off with a little bit of WD-40. Just spray the gum liberally and it should slide right out. No bad haircut necessary!
- Remove crayon from walls
Is your little artist getting a little carried away with their artwork? You can remove crayon from walls and other surfaces with WD-40!
- Wipe away stains
Coffee and tea stains can be a pain to remove from counter tops in your kitchen, but using WD-40 makes them wipe up with ease! This is perfect for light-colored co unters that show every single stain.
- Prevent wasps’ nests
In the summertime, wasps and yellow jackets can be bothersome as you’re enjoying time outside. Prevent these pests from building nests by spraying WD-40 where they usually build. The smell will deter them from building in that area. This also works if you already have a wasps’ nest built. Just spray the wasp nest liberally from a safe distance and you’ll be amazed at how quickly the wasps die! You can then later remove the nest.
- Clean a toilet
For toilets that are badly stained, either they are rarely used or you’ve recently moved into a new house, you can remove those set-in stains with WD-40. Spray the stains and scrub until clean. Then continue to clean the toilet as normal.
