If there is one product every basement and garage in North America has on hand, it’s most likely WD-40. The “Blue Standby” has become as essential as duct tape in helping the resident handyman fix everything from a rusted bolt that refuses to turn, to our children’s bicycles after a long Toronto Winter.
WD-40 is a water dis-placer (WD) that helps to remove moisture (and keep rust away) from hundreds of household items. Over the years, the uses for WD-40 have gone beyond home repairs. Crayola Crayons recommends using WD-40 regular crayon marks from everyday surfaces and a bus driver once used a can to loosen a Python that coiled itself around the undercarriage of his bus.
Below is a great infographic from the makers of WD-40. It’s a survival guide of everyday problem solving with your handy can of old blue.
