WD40 is pretty much the duct tape of lubricants. This convenience in a can has been every mechanics’ best friend for years now, and it’s because it’s so versatile! Not only is WD40 a lubricant but it’s actually a cleaner and a penetrating oil. You can use this stuff for so much, but here are some of our favorite ways to use it on your car.


On Door Locks


If you take WD40 and spray it in your door locks it will clean them, lubricate them, and protect them later on. This will prevent most problems from ever occurring! Don’t worry this will not clog your locks! Another great place to spray it where keys go is the ignition! 


Water Dissipation


WD40 actually dissipates water. You might be thinking, “Why would I need that for my car?” Well, if you drove through deep water or it rained a lot and your electronics aren’t working correctly, you can spray WD40 on the affected area and it will start working fine in no time!


The Wheels


If you’re trying to change a tire and you can’t get the wheel off WD40 is there to save the day. Spray WD40 where the lugnuts were, and then give the wheel a little kick and it should pop right off. Here’s a hot tip: before you replace the wheel spray WD40 on the back and it will keep it from sticking on next time!


Brake Drums


If you’re changing the brakes and the drums just won’t come off, spray the middle with WD40! After only a couple hits with a mallet it will pop right off. Just like the wheels make sure to apply some WD40 to the backside of the brakes before you put them on. This will make your life a lot easier!


Cleaning Your Car


You can clean the exterior and interior of your car with WD40! It’s great for getting rid of tar, mud, and other deposits that cling to painted surfaces and it won’t harm the finish! If there are bird droppings on your car, don’t fret WD40 will take them off like they’re nothing! The same goes for old bumper stickers. And, if your carpet is filthy you can spray the affected area and rub gently with a cloth to remove any stains!


So, hopefully you can see why it’s a good idea to always have some WD40 in the trunk!
