Everyone has heard and used WD-40 at least once in their life. WD-40 is a cleaning agent, lubricant, and an anti-corrosive product, which can be quite handy around the house. The name WD-40 actually means Water Displacement – 40th Attempt. The person behind the product wanted to design a formula which would prevent corrosion, and was successful at his 40th attempt, as you may have assumed.
We all know the basic uses for WD-40. We use it for cleaning tools and sports equipment, it prevents rust, lubricates sticky drawers, fixes squeaky hinges, displaces moisture etc. But there are a couple of innovative uses for this product which we bet you didn’t know, but can be a real life-changer.
Safety Notice: Even though everyone uses it and it’s generally considered a safe-product, WD-40 is petroleum based, which means that it’s highly flammable. It’s harmful if swallowed and can cause respiratory difficulties if used in excess and in not so well-ventilated areas. It can also be dangerous for pets and the fumes can be dangerous for little children. So it’s not advised to be used around them.
