WD 40 can be used to do so many things to make whatever we do in the house or out so much easier.
People think of WD 40 to loosen screws and stop the squeaky doors. In this article, I will show you the best tips and ways I use WD 40 to make things so much easier.
Cleaning Dry Erase Board
If you have a dry erase board at home and someone uses a permanent marker on it, don’t worry. Spray some Wd 40 on the area’s that’s covered with the marker.
Use a microfiber cloth and wipe the marks away. You may need to put a little pressure on the area to effectively remove the marks. If the cloth didn’t work, use a sponge.
Loosen Old Bolts
If you are trying to loosen a bolt that is really old and you just go and try to get it off, chances are you will lose that bolt or ruin it because you will destroy the groves on it an make it really smooth. What you can do is spray some wd 40 on the bot, let it sit for an hour, and then you can try to remove it.
The same goes here with old screens in wood or appliances, the material of the screw will be really week and easily bent, so spray some wd 40 on it and give it some time before you use any tools on it.
Stucked Ringe On Your Finger
One day someone showed me a ring so I tried it on, to get it off though, it was my worst nightmare. It went on so easily and was a fight to come off, so I tried using some wd 40 on it and I twisted it right off without a problem.
This can save you a lot of money because I knew people who had to get there wedding rings cut off because they gain a little weight and the ring got too tight. Just imagine a 5000$ ring that you have to cut up, that is painful, especially if someone had to work really hard to buy you that ring.
Remove Permanent Marker Marks Off Your Hardwood Floor
If your child somehow finds a permanent mark and decides that he’s going to become an artist on the floor, then you are in big trouble. You will spend so much time trying to get it off with just water and soap, which will be pointless in the end. All you need to do is add some wd 40 to the area and use a cloth and wipe it off, it’s that easy to do.
If your camping or trying to start a fire at home, WD 40 will come in handy. All you will need is one or three cotton balls. Spray the WD 40 on the cotton balls until they a fully soaked, place them on whatever you’re trying to set on fire.
They can burn up to 5 minutes, so this method is useful when your camping and need a fire started. If the wood for your fire pit got wet you could also use the wd 40 to help boost starting a fire with them, it won’t help to light a fire on the wet wood, but it can make the fire bigger and hot enough on the dry wood to help dry the others that are wet.
All you need to carry is the WD 40 because first aid kits have cotton balls inside. A bonus is that it can burn in wet areas as well. Click on the link to see the video I made below.
Insects will find every way to come into your house. It can be under the window or through the door corners.
The smallest areas you can think of they will come through there. Wherever you see them coming through or from spray some wd 40 there, and it will keep them away. Spiders and ants hate the smell of WD 40, and if they find themself in it, that’s a sure death for them. The grease from the WD 40 will work as a glue by sticking their legs together.
Cleaning Stainless Steel
Using WD 40 is a great method to remove watermarks and clean stainless steel. Whether, it’s your pots, pans, or kitchen faucets. Spray the WD 40 on the area and wipe it with a sponge or microfiber cloth.
You can use it to wipe down your refrigerator dishwasher and even your stove if they have stainless steel material. Do not wipe the top of the stove with the WD 40 because it’s very flammable.
When you have a new window installed or appliances, they will have manufacture stickers on them in someplace that you don’t like.
Trying to remove them will leave glue residue all over, trying to scrape it off will be the worst decision you make because when you do get it off, you will see all the scratches you just made.
Spray WD 40 on the stickers and leave it for a minute or two, and it will come off easily. You can use this method on any stickers or tape that you want to remove without leaving any residue.
Make your shoes water-resistant
If it’s a rainy day and you don’t have a waterproof shoe, or you just want to wear that one special shoe, here’s a nice little trick.
Spray WD 40 on the shoe, and you will be able to use it even if its raining for the day. This isn’t a permanent method, but it’s a quick fix.
Cleaning your shoes
White sneakers we love them, but grass and bumping into stuff are there worse enemies. They will start to look dirty all the time, even if you try to clean them.
The trick is using WD 40 whenever you can on them. This will remove the marks and save you from buying a new pair when those could last a few more months.
You might be looking at your car headlights and saying that you may have to buy new a new set because they look so old, but it can be that they want a wipe down with WD 40 to remove the fog and yellow color that developed on them. Do this twice for the month to keep them looking brand new.
You can also spray a little Wd 40 on the glass in your house and clean it off as well. That’s if you run out of your window cleaning product or you just don’t have any.
Cleaning bathroom tub spout
Hard water in areas leaves deposits in the moving parts of the plumbing over time, which we cant prevent and have to call a plumber.
The tub spout diverter will eventually be clogged one day. Use WD 40 with its spray nozzle curved up the spout to the diverter valve as close a possible.
A couple of sprays will do the job and stop the spout from draining water, which can make your water bill unbelievably and have you wonder what could be the problem and little did you know maybe a few spouts in your home is leaking.

If your car has a lot of chrome on it, you want it to look shiny all the time. Spray some WD 40 on the chrome and give it a few wipes, and it will look brand new again. Make sure not to use too much of it because you will leave the chrome really greasy.
That will cause dust and other things to stick to it and make it even harder to clean. What you should do is spray some on one spot and use a microfiber cloth and wipe it all over the area.
Free Glass That’s Join Together
So glasses shouldn’t be put together because you will never get them to be free without breaking one, wd 40 can change that though.
If you did it by mistake or someone in the house did it, you shouldn’t get rid of the glasses. Just spray some Wd 40 around it and let it sit for 5 minutes or more and they will come apart easily.
Removing hard water stains
Hard water stains are the minerals that are in the water, and if the water is staying in a place consistently, then the minerals will start to stick to whatever surface it can stick to.
Spray some WD 40 in the toilet bowl and leave it for a while, then go back and scrub it with the toilet brush. Use the nozzle on the WD 40 bottle to reach areas that are harder to clean with the brush. The WD 40 will break down anything that there.
