The Homemaker’s Guide to Easy Home Solutions Part III: WD-40 Edition

WD-40 is the end-all, be-all solution. It can be used practically anywhere in the home. WD-40 has so many solutions that the marketers of the product have no problems advertising that on its packaging.

Read on for the many ways you can use the fabulous WD-40:

-You can quiet a squeaky door hinge by spritzing a little WD-40 on the hinge. It’ll grease the metal enough to give it some fluid movement and not announce every time someone has open and shut the door.

-WD-40 can be useful in a closet two ways: fix a loud sliding closet door and make perusing through your closet easier. Spray a little WD on the track to help the door move better. Spray the top of the rod in the closet to help clothes hangers glide over the rod easier. It makes looking for an outfit go much faster!

-During the holiday season, we tend to decorate our windows with decorative holiday figures. If you’re a fan of the spray-on snow, you can use WD-40 to take the white residue off in a snap after the holiday season. If you’re a fan of window clings, spritz WD-40 on to lift off the stubborn plastic cling.

-Before you go out to shovel snow, coat your shovel with ubiquitous WD solution. It makes shoveling the heavy, icy stuff so much easier by allowing the snow to slide right off the shovel.

-Nothing can put a cramp in your day more than discovering you’ve got a big wad of gum on the bottom of your shoe. Spray the gum-y area with a little WD and wait a minute, allowing the spray to seep into the gum. Then simply wipe the gum off with a napkin or paper towel. This beats trying to pull the gum off with your fingers by a long shot!

-If your little one has gone sticker-crazy on your windows or mirrors, use WD-40 to take the sticky adorations off. Spray the stickers, then wipe them off with a dry cloth.

-Make your bathroom fixtures sparkle by spraying WD-40 on a dry cloth and swiping it over the fixtures. Wipe away the spotty marks left over from toothpaste and water.

-Use WD-40 to remove tar from your car without ruining the paint. Spray WD-40, then wipe away with a clean cloth.

-If you’re sick of squirrels eating all of your birdseed, coat the post of your birdfeeder with WD-40. The solution keeps squirrels from climbing up the feeder, leaving the seed for the birds.
