WD40 makes for a squeaky clean finish

WD40 has many cleaning properties, it is one of the less used cleaning hacks, mostly as many are not a big fan of it’s smell.

But it is definitely worth trying if you need help with any of the following…


  1. Removing glue
    Clean dried glue from virtually any hard surface with ease: Simply spray WD-40 onto the spot, wait at least 30 seconds, and wipe clean with a damp cloth.
  2. Getting chewing gum out of hair
    Simply spray the gummed-up hair with WD-40, and the gum will comb out with ease. Make sure you are in a well-ventilated area when you spray and take care to avoid contact with the child’s eyes.
  3. Removing tea stains on a surface
    To remove tea stains from countertops, spray a little WD-40 on a sponge or damp cloth and wipe the stain away.
  4. Cleaning toilet bowls
    Spray WD40 into the bowl for a couple of seconds and swish with a nylon toilet brush. The solvents in the WD-40 will help dissolve the gunk and lime.
  5. Removing tough scuff marks
    Use WD-40 to help remove tar and scuff marks on all your hard-surfaced floors. It won’t harm the surface, and you won’t have to scrub nearly as much.
  6. De-greasing
    Spray a small amount of WD-40 into your hands and rub them together for a few seconds, then wipe with a paper towel and wash with soap and water. The grease and grime will wash right off.
