WD 40, 50 and 60....

My sister-in-law sent us a list of exactly what WD-40 can do for you. She says that the main ingredient in the stuff is fish oil! Fish oil plus other things, so don't go spraying it in your mouth everyday for extra Omega 3's in your system.

Check this out...

WD-40 uses:

1. Protects silver from tarnishing.

2. Removes road tar and grime from cars.

3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.

4. Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making them slippery.

5.. Keeps flies off cows.

6. Restores and cleans chalkboards.

7. Removes lipstick stains.

8.. Loosens stubborn zippers.

9. Untangles jewelry chains.

10. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks.

11. Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill.

12. Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing.

13. Removes tomato stains from clothing.

14. Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots.

15. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.

16. Keeps scissors working smoothly..

17. Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes.

18. It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor! Use WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn't seem to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard to get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.

19. Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly! Use WD-40!

20. Gives a children's playground gym slide a shine for a super fast slide.

21. Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on riding mowers...

22.. Rids kids rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises.

23. Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open..

24. Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close.

25. Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as vinyl bumpers.

26. Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles.

27. Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans

28. Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling.

29. Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running smoothly.

30. Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools.

31. Removes splattered grease on stove.

32. Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.

33. Lubricates prosthetic limbs.

34. Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell).

35. Removes all traces of duct tape.

36. Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain.

37. Florida ’s favorite use is: 'cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers.'

38. The favorite use in the state of New York , WD-40 protects the Statue of Liberty from the elements.

39. WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a little on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time. Also, it's a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just that purpose. Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.

40. Use it for fire ant bites.. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.

41. WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.

42. Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, satur ate the lipstick spots with WD-40 and rewash. Presto! The lipstick is gone!

43. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start.

Pretty cool, huh. Who knew?
Anyway, after perusing the list, I find that there were some things missing, or maybe things that 'I' think are missing.
Such as....

1. Spray WD-40 on a sink full of dishes and they will wash themselves and dry themselves in 45 seconds or less.

2. Spray it on your tax returns and you will get a larger refund.

3. Use a few spritz's for hairspray and your hair will never frizz up when it's raining out.

4. Spray it around yourself when you are walking in the rain and you will stay dry and not get pissed off.

5. Spray it on your tummy and it will tighten up flat a a board. (or not...)

6. Spray it under your beds and couches and it will keep the dust bunnies out.

7. Spray it on your birth certificate and it will subtract 15 years or so from your birthdate.

And in my book, the best one....8. Spray it on a Dairy Queen Peanut Buster Parfait and all the calories will be removed.

But of course, they'd have to rename the stuff to be WD 50 or 60 ....probably.

Loved the suggestions - and the funny part - now if I could just stand the smell of that stuff without getting a miserable headache.

(My word verification is headnests LOL)

I'm thinking that I need to run out and buy a case of this stuff - immediately! I think that it has the potential to dramatically change my life!

This was so funny. Would it work on a chocolate malt with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate sirup with a cookie on the side?

I enjoyed the previous post...your kids are really talented. Your students do so much more in art class than I did in school years ago.Wish I'd had a teacher like you...

Great post. Love that WD-40, I always have. I keep my own private supply, cause my Husband can never find his!
Hugs, Kathleen

Thanks for sharing all that great info about WD-40. Going to have to pass that one along to my friends and family.
You are too funny with your list!

I believe also if you spritz yourself liberally with it, you can probably squeeze into those skinny jeans you wore when you were sixteen. And by "you" I totally mean "me".

Getting out of them again may require the fire department.

Too bad they can't fit all that information on the can. Actually they should pair up sales of WD-40 and duct tape, what a combination that would be! ~Lili

Great saying in Australia...
"Just sticka bitta the ol' WD40 on it mate!" (mainly cars,and barbecues but think it covers all you've mentioned!)Heard that saying all my life, and think I'm about to use it for my squeaking ironing board,a white cloth button with lipstick on it, and jammed windows at the place my daughter's renting.Loved your previous post.The art work is great.You are so inspiring.

Frameless shower doors are very economical to purchase and hence they can easily be purchased by the average people. They look very delicate and thin apparently and thus many people are afraid that they would easily break. However the fact is that they are much more strong, thick, and durable than the ordinary glass and this makes their maintenance easier.
