Fifteen Phenomenal Uses For WD-40

  • I don't know about you but I am definitely going to keep a bottle of WD-40 in my car and a few extra in the house. Although this stuff only requires you to spray just a small coat it can become addicting to fix everything!

    17. Clean and lubricate guitar strings
    To clean, lubricate, and prevent corrosion on guitar strings, apply a small amount of WD-40 after each playing. Spray the WD-40 on a rag and wipe the rag over the strings rather than spraying directly on the strings-you don’t want WD-40 to build up on the guitar neck or body.
    18. Keep wooden tool handles splinter free
    No tools can last forever, but you can prolong the life of your wood-handled tools by preventing splintering. To keep wooden handles from splintering, rub a generous amount of WD-40 into the wood. It will shield the wood from moisture and other corrosive elements and keep it smooth and splinter-free for the life of the tool.

    19. Break in a new baseball glove
    Use WD-40 instead of neat’s-foot oil to break in a new baseball glove. Spray the glove with WD-40, put a baseball in the palm, and fold it sideways. Take a rubber band or belt and tie it around the folded glove. The WD-40 will help soften the leather and help it form around the baseball. Keep the glove tied up overnight, and then wear it for a while so it will begin to fit the shape of your hand.

    20. Relieve arthritis symptoms
    For occasional joint pain or arthritis symptoms in the knees or other areas of the body, advocates swear by spraying WD-40 on the affected area and massaging it in, saying it provides temporary relief and makes movement easier. For severe, persistent pain, consult a health care professional.

    This is unbelievable I never knew there was so many different uses for this type of stuff. The next time I run into any of these problems I am definitely running for the spray can for this stuff.

    Have you ever used WD-40 for any of these issues? If so tell us how it worked and how much you used.

    This list is not over exaggerated and I have actually tried almost everything on here and let me tell you the results were phenomenal.
