Household Uses for WD-40
You would be surprised if you knew the thousands of things this can of secret ingredients can accomplish (even the official website does not reveal the ingredients in the can, the website only guarantees that it does not contain CFCs, kerosene, silicone, graphite, or water). Since it is petroleum based, it is inflammable, so that is one factor you need to keep in mind. It is best to use WD-40 only in well-ventilated areas so as to avoid any potential respiratory problems in people who are prone to them.
So what is WD-40?
WD-40 was developed by a chemist in 1953 and stands for Water Displacement 40th Formula. The aim was to develop a product that prevented corrosion, but years down the line the product has gained an iconic status and is used for multiple purposes that perhaps the inventor had never even foreseen!
What are the household uses for WD-40? It is usually used as a lubricant, cleaning agent, and anti-corrosive agent. Here are some creative ways in which you can make the most of the product.
