1. Make a spade dig faster

Spray a little WD-40 onto your garden spade before digging to make it slide easier into the ground.

2. Quickly remove crayon from walls

WD-40 makes a great cleaning product. If you have kids you’ll love WD-40’s ability to quickly remove crayon scrawl from walls, table surfaces and TV screen.
Spray the WD-40 onto a sponge or flannel and wipe off the crayon.

3. Remove tea stains from a iamspamspamamicounter

You can quickly scrub away tea stains from a iamspamspamamicounter by spraying WD-40 on a sponge and using it to wipe away tea stains.

4. Shine the leaves of plastic plants

If you have plastic plants in the office then you can make the leaves look shiny and healthy by spraying WD-40 on to them. Please check they are plastic
first, and don’t spray WD-40 onto real plants.

5. Remove blue ink from stained jeans

We’ve all had a ballpoint pen leak in a pocket. Spray it on to the stain, wait a few minutes and then rinse the clothes.

6. Clean dog dirt from trainers

Yuck! Getting dog dirt on a brand new pair of trainers is a disaster, and cleaning trainers with dog muck on them isn’t much fun. But the WD-40’s “water
displacement” function makes the dirt just slide off. spray your trainers with WD-40 and give it a few minutes before starting to clean.

7. Remove adhesive price tags from CD/DVD cases

If you have a plastic case, such as a CD or DVD with a price sticker stuck to it; WD-40 can be used to help remove it. Spray a little on, and wait, then
rub off the sticker.

8. Clean off chewing gum

WD-40 is fantastic if you have chewing gum stuck to your shoes, or walked into your carpet, or even your hair. Spray a little WD-40 on the gum, wait a few
moments, and then pull the gum off.

Chewing-Gum

9. Clean your hairbrush

WD-40 unclogged matted hair from hair brushes. Spray a little WD-40 onto the hairbrush, wait for it to sink into the hair and pull the hair free.

10. Waterproof your shoes

You can spray WD-40 onto your shoes to waterproof them for the winter months.

11. Free stuck LEGO blocks

If you have stuck LEGO blocks a little WD-40 can help you price them apart.

12. Remove toothpaste stains

Toothpaste stains in the bathroom can be a pain to get rid off, but WD-40 shifts them quick spot.

13. Clean a clogged inkjet nozzle

This one is a bit controversial (and as a rule we don’t suggest using WD-40 on electrical products because of the residue). But if you’re careful a tiny
blast of WD-40 can unstick a clogged inkjet. It’s worth doing on a cheap, old printer that you might otherwise throw away (we’d be wary about using it
on a brand new £400 inkjet.)

14. Remove candle-wax or glue from carpet

If you have candle wax, or glue, on your carpet then you can remove it with WD-40. Spray a little WD-40 onto the wax and leave it to dry, and then rub it
out with a sponge.

15. Spray on trees to prevent beavers from chewing on them

We don’t have many beavers in the UK, but one of the more innovative uses is to protect trees from beavers. It can be used to repel many a small animal,
so if you have other animals causing trouble with your trees try spraying WD-40 on the affected area.

16. Clean dead insects from car

During the mid summer you can get plenty of bugs and insects covered from your car window. Spraying WD-40 onto your car can help quickly remove the stuck
bugs.

17. The world’s best fishing lure

If you like fly-fishing then you could use WD-40 to polish your lures, which helps you when fishing. Here’s the thing: this isn’t recommended by WD-40 because
they don’t want to pollute rivers, so we don’t recommend it. But it’s good to know.

18. Prevent mildew growth outdoors

Spray a little WD-40 into a spot to prevent mildew growth in your garden. This is often used on outdoor fountains, which are prone to mildews.

19. Stop wasps from nesting

Spraying WD-40 can repel a lot of insects and bugs, and because it’s waterproof it tends to stick around. If you have trouble with wasps nesting under your
roof, then spraying that area with WD-40 once a year can keep them away.

20. Clean bathroom tiles

If you’ve got mascara, nail polish or paint on a bathroom tile you can use WD-40 to remove it.

21. Protect a bird feeder from squirrels

Another crazy one, but if you spray a birdhouse with WD-40 it’ll keep squirrels off it but birds will still be able to get at the food. Just make sure the
bird feeder doesn’t have food in it when you spray it with WD-40.

22. Clean fake snow spray from windows

If you like to use fake snow on your windows at Christmas, you’ll appreciate the powers of WD-40 for removing it.

23. Remove oil spot from driveway

Leaky car? Use WD-40 to remove the oil spots from your driveway.

24. Keep a lawn mower grass free

Spray the underneath of your hover lawn mower with WD-40 to prevent grass from sticking to the underneath and jamming up the mower.

25. Fix squeaky shoes

It sounds like a joke but WD-40 can be good for some kinds of squeaky shoes; so give it a try.

26. WD-40 is a great slug and snail repellent

Use WD-40 to keep slugs and snails from eating your pot plants. Spray the outside of the pot with WD-40 and it will keep the crawlers away. WD-40 is waterproof,
so you can do this and it’ll keep working even after it rains.

SnailRepellent

27. Keep spiders out of your shed

You can also use WD-40 to keep spiders away from a garden shed. But it’s not recommended for indoor use because of the fumes, especially if you have small
children.

28. Spray chalk lines to keep them from washing away

Spray chalk lines on the ground with WD-40 to waterproof them. The WD-40 will prevent the chalk from washing away in the rain.

29. Remove stuck rings from fingers

You can use WD-40 to remove stuck rings on your finger. Just give it a quick spray with WD-40 and pull the ring off. Wash your hands straight away afterwards.

30. Remove glue from hands

You can also use WD-40 to quickly remove glue from your fingers. Wash your hands afterwards.

31. Loosen stuck zippers

WD-40 is great for loosening stuck zippers on clothes (but be careful to spray the zip and not the clothing).

32. Removes stains left from silly string

You can use WD-40 to remove the stains left by silly string.

33, Lubricate vinyl records to prevent skipping

One use for WD-40 is to lubricate vinyl records to prevent skipping. We should point out that when WD-40 evaporates it leaves a small residue behind, so
we wouldn’t do this on our prize vinyl. But it’s a neat trick.

34. Shine surfaces for stock photography

You can shine surfaces with WD-40 prior to photographing objects on them. The surface shine will improve the look of your products. It’s great for taking
shots to put on EBay.

35. Remove old duct tape

You can remove old duct tape by spraying it with WD-40.

36. Clean off car sticker residue

Spray WD-40 onto stickers placed onto your car to remove the sticker residue. This is great if you have sticker residue on your car window.

37. Keep a bicycle mud free

There is some arguments about whether WD-40 should be used bicycle chains (instead of grease), but it’s great for keeping mud off bikes. Spray the bike
frame with WD-40 before heading into the wilderness.

38. Expert-level Twister

We’re not kidding. One of the suggested uses for WD-40 is to spray a Twister mat to make the game more challenging. Do this at your own risk and use it
outside (don’t let children inhale the fumes) and wash your hands afterwards.

39. Snake charmer

A bus driver in Asia used WD-40 to remove a python, which was coiled around the undercarriage of his bus.

40. Cocaine use preventer

Bars in Bristol were advised by police to spray WD-40 onto the rears of toilet seats to prevent people from using the seat lids to snort cocaine. The WD-40
turns the drug to mush.

Is WD-40 a cure for arthritis?

Finally, here is one that’s not true. There’s an urban myth that WD-40 can be used to cure arthritis.
According to WD-40 this isn’t the case.
Sorry. Also, did you know that WD-40 isn’t actually a lubricant, it’s a solvent. While it can be used to loosen and clean just about anything, it’s worth
also getting a good spray lubricant like
GT85
for your door hinges, bicycle chains and any gears. The full list of
over 2,000 suggestions
can be seen on the WD-40 website.

I probably could change it, just haven't thought about removing it recently. It's become a bit of a Buzzjack staple hasn't it?

Although TRUE. I guess I may miss people being bemused by why it's filtered.

Well, it's resistant, I'm probably doing something wrong but I've removed lots of iamspamspamamirelated things from the badword filter, especially all things that convert to iamspamspamami and... WELL, you can see for yourself.
