11+ Amazing Ways WD-40 Will Change Your Life



    Unless you live under a rock, I am sure you’ve heard of and probably even used WD-40 at least once in your life. It has so many everyday uses that we use it for such as the car, cleaning and unsticking rusty metal, and the best one that probably everyone has used on: anything that makes annoying noises, like a squeaky door. You may not be aware but it has a multitude of other uses. This is the king of hacks! It’s not just for the squeaky door anymore. In fact, it has a multitude of other uses you probably aren’t aware of.

    So to fill you in, here are some ingenious WD-40 uses that will be time savers for you. They are so simple and WD-40 so inexpensive, there’s no reason not to try! Check out these uses and let me know what you think.


    Removes Crayon from Any Surface

    So, I am sure we’ve all been there. Your little one, for reasons we’ll never know, left the coloring book or paper and decided the wall was better. At the time, you were horrified because your thought is how am I going to cover this? I need to buy paint and primer, right? Wrong! Simply use WD-40, sprayed directly to the wall (The Krazy Coupon Lady says only walls with a sheen. Matte or flat paint will stain!) and wipe away your child’s drawings.


    Protect Glass Doors from Stains and Buildup

    If you have glass showers doors, you need to know this amazing trick for keeping water stains and buildup on the doors.

    Stuck On Chewing Gum

    Again, pretty sure we’ve all had a gum issue one time or another. I’ve had the sticky gooey mess because someone spits their gum in the parking lot. Annoying, right?! Whether it’s on your carpet, pants, or shoes, stuck gum is seriously a pain. I didn’t know then, but I am saving us both future heartache by telling you that you can spray WD-40 directly onto the gum. Just let it set for a few minutes. Then it’ll pull the gum right off.

    Removes Labels

    If you’ve bought something and it has the price tag that won’t come off and is leaving the residue, simply spray a little and WD-40 does the work for you. It’s also great if you like to reuse jars and want to get the labels off.

    Swollen Fingers & Stuck Rings

    Have you ever had the panic attack that your fingers were swollen and you could feel the rings tightening like a vice? I had an episode a couple Christmases ago where I could feel it and went to take the rings off and they would not budge. We were trying everything! We were so afraid I’d need to go to the ER and get them cut. If this ever happens to you, all it takes is a spray of WD-40. It does the work and the stuck ring will quickly slide off.

    Stuck Zippers

    Have you ever been wearing something that the zipper got stuck? Oh the fear! I had a jacket on and was stuck. Luckily for me, it came unstuck. But if yours ever doesn’t unstick, or you feel it’s starting to get that way you can certainly head it off at the pass by simply a spray of WD-40. No more worries!

    Carpet Stains

    WD-40 is a magnificent stain remover. Even on your carpet. Little one got a hold of a pen and marked on the carpet? WD-40 to the rescue! Spray the stain with WD-40 and let it sit for few minutes. The stain will be easy to remove.

    So you got lipstick on your favorite shirt, did ya? Yep, you guessed it…Just a spray of WD-40 will take that out!

    Remove Stains From Countertops

    Coffe, tea, and koolaid or terrible on counters especially laminate. However, WD-40 is the remedy for that as well! Spray a little on the counter, wait a moment and wipe.
