Stop using W-40 as a lubricant.

It displaces water to move its profits up.

If it moves and it shouldn't: duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should: WD-40. Otherwise, leave it be.

Still one of the most interesting stories about a product name.

As it should.
I just used WD-40 to take chewing gum off the fender and wheel well of the car.
Worked great, too.

This has served me well.

Also, this indicates a higher than usual DIY ethos. It might, or might not be economically related. These things tend to go in cycles.

lol... this.

I wonder how the WD-40 people feel about the fact that 90% of their customers are buying their product to do something that it isnt made to do.

Despite the product's history and the douchebags that recite it anytime they see a can of the stuff ...anyone who says that WD-40 isn't a lubricant has no clue what in the flip they are talking about.

Water, spit, kerosene, butter, etc. can be used as a lubricant.


It is a pretty useful and universally used product.

WD-40 is a water dispersing cleaning solvent.  When a door hinge squeaks, what you are actually hearing is microscopic oscillations of metal grinding over dirt and debris, not the two sides of the hinge itself grinding together.  So when you spray it down with WD-40, it cleans out the debris and contaminants, and thus stops the squeak... but it has horrible lubricating properties and will disperse from the joint in a short amount of time.

Clean with WD-40, then apply an actual lubricant such as lithium grease or a silicone based liquid.
