HOME: 10 ALTERNATE USES FOR WD-40 other than lubrication

A can of WD-40 does more than just free rusted metal parts or stop things from making irritating squeaky noises. Here are 10 more clever uses for the fluid that you might not have thought of.

YOUTUBE VIDEO demonstrating 10 clever alternate uses of WD 40

The YouTube channel Inspire to Make shows us that WD-40 fluid can be used to do helpful things like remove wax crayons from screens, clean off chewing gum from carpets and shoes, act as a carpet and kitchen cleaner to fight tough stains, add a short-term shine to leather shoes (though we recommend getting a proper polish and brush), and more. The one time we do see the WD-40 lubricating something is on a stuck zipper, which is still quite clever. Check out the video for a beautiful rundown on all the interesting uses of WD-40.
