2000+ Uses for WD-40...WHO KNEW....

I have always known that WD-40 is a terrific product to alleviate a squeaky noise from a door hinge. I have even used it to remove rust from various surfaces, like an old bikes, but I was really surprised to find there are many, many verified uses. Did you know that WD-40 removes crayon from carpet (be sure to test WD-40 on low visibility area of carpet before using)and removes coffee stains from floor tiles (be sure to wipe floor clean after using WD-40)? You can even use it to remove stains from clothing prior to washing, and it helps remove permanent marker, etc. Go to www.wd40.com. Check out the various categories too. You will enjoy this site!!
