WD-40 – it really is a magical substance, isn’t it? Sure, you probably reach for the familiar blue and yellow can when you need to quiet a squeaky hinge or add a little extra grease to a sticky situation.
But here’s a little secret, friends — there are oh-so-many more uses for WD-40. Two thousand and counting, to be exact. Intrigued? So are we!
The best news is that WD-40 has compiled the 2,000 uses into a free (yes, free) PDF that you can download, print and store away. Plus, the uses are divided by category, too, so it’s relatively easy to find a potential solution to your problem.
