The other day, I decided, I could not take the screeching sound of the garage door opening and closing anymore. It was driving me insane. I felt like it was echoing throughout the neighborhood. I went and bought some WD-40 because that is what my mom always used on squeaky doors.
I put it on the hinges and I was amazed at what a difference it made. It is like a whole new garage door, and doesn’t make a peep. I was so excited that I went throughout my house and sprayed it on all of the door hinges that might have a little noise. I started to wonder what else this can of goodness could do. Here are some other ways to use WD-40 in your house that might surprise you.
Remove crayon marks: You can spray and wipe off marks from glass, mirrors, walls, and wallpaper.
Get rid of gum: If you get gum in the carpet of fabric, just spray WD-40 on the spot. Wait 10 minutes and remove gum with a cloth.
Loosen Zippers: If you have a stubborn zipper, spray WD-40 and pull zipper up and down, then remove excess with a paper towel.
Remove scuff marks: If your family has a habit of leaving scuff marks on your tile or wood floor use this spray to remove them. Just rub marks with a clean cloth until it is no longer slippery.
Clean silver: Use WD-40 to remove tarnish from your silver jewelry or utensils. It will even help prevent tarnish from building up again because it seals out moisture.
De-grease bike chain: Spray WD-40 on your chain to clean, degrease and lubricate. It will also remove any sticky residue on the frame.
Remove stickers: Stubborn stickers can come off with a spray of WD-40. Let it saturate and remove with cloth.
Loosen baked on food: Spray on pans that have food that has been baked on. Spray, wipe, then clean with soap and water.
