I use WD-40 on literally everything, I even clean stuff with it. Got WD-40 cans everywhere, shop, home, office, trunk of my car (I think). Huge fan

Looks like in 10~15 years I'll need to sneak an extra can in the bedside table

5 stars!!!

Funny, but false. WD40 started advertising in the 50's.

* WD40 tip, good to remove race rubber marks.

WD 40 just say NO

well at least for rust prevention. Back when I was a kid in the 60's people used WD-40 on elbows and knees and shoulders that hurt. I always thought this was the dumbest thing I had ever heard until recently , I was told the original formula contained DMSO as a solvent...this was the rage in the late 70's and early 80's for sprains and injuries ....until it was discovered how bad for your liver it is.

PS if you have any firearms never use WD-40 on them...it displaces water and lubricants

yes, many people actually think WD-40 is a lubricant. It does have some lubricating qualities, but it is not a lubricant like teflon or silicon
