What's your first thought when you hear about WD-40? Squeaky brakes? Rusty tools? A front door that doesn't open as easily as it used to? WD-40 can be used for all of these things, but it has many other uses as well.
In fact, WD-40 can be used for everything from cleaning to minor fixes around the house. Instead of buying several different products for all the chores you have, just grab a can of WD-40 and let it take care of everything.
1. All glass, including shower doors
Glass is always a pain to clean, whether it's a window, a mirror or a shower door. But with a can of WD-40, you can do wonders. Check out the video below to see how this process works.
2. Refrigerator
Next time you feel motivated to clean out the refrigerator, you're going to have to deal with some caked-on gunk that has no intention of being removed. You could try to clean it out with soap and water, but that won't get rid of anything that's really stuck on. For those messes, you'll need to follow the method in the video below.
3. Bird feeders
Are you one of the many people who just wants to feed the birds? Do you also find yourself constantly chasing away pesky squirrels who try to steal the treats out of the bird feeder? To ensure that this never happens again, use the technique demonstrated in the video below.
4. Squeaky hinges (h/t Money Experts Team)
Even in new houses, door hinges develop an annoying squeak after a while. Luckily, WD-40 is here to save the day. Watch the demonstration in the video below to learn how.
5. Fingernail polish
If you have children, you've probably spent a good deal of time trying to clean up spilled fingernail polish. Instead of scrubbing floors or countertops with products that will still leave a stain, turn to WD-40 instead. The video below shows how it works.
6. Boots and shoes
If you live in an area that gets a lot of moisture, you know the importance of waterproof footwear. Buying boots or shoes that are already waterproofed might not always be in your budget, however. Instead, give this cheap DIY a shot.
7. Rings that are stuck
Many kids tried on their parents' wedding rings at one time or another. And many then experienced the fear of being unable to take off the ring. You can use butter or vegetable oil to help remove a stuck ring, but even those slippery items don't always work. Next time, give the technique shown in this video a try.
8. Wasp nests
Summertime means dealing with bugs. One of the worst bugs to run across is the wasp. A can of WD-40 can help you make your home wasp-proof. When spring rolls around, spray WD-40 under the eaves, which will chase away any wasps who want to build their nests there.
9. Snow
WD-40 is great to have around as winter approaches. You can spray it on windows and car doors to prevent snow from building up and covering them. You can also coat your shovel with it, which will keep snow from sticking to the shovel and weighing it down while you try to scoop out the driveway.
