Here are 20 uses for Water Displacement 40.
Someone on YT asked how to make his tennis shoes waterproof? WD40 claims it can.
I buy WD40 by the gallon. I never thought of using it as an insect repellent or to clean tennis shoes. I'm sure you may have other uses.

And at 70 or older what is the risk/downs side versus at 35-40. Side effects are not likely to do much before other things cause the end to come anyway.

WD40 works good for *preventing* rust and *keeping* things free. But for actualy getting things freed up, just about anything else is miles ahead. If its all you got its better than nothing. I'm realy not brand loyal. I buy whatever is on sale. But I will NEVER go back to WD40 for rusted parts

Careful what you do, WD40 is flammable. It's as bad as an expert I saw recommend treating carpenter bees on your house by saturating the wood with gasoline.

I don't know why everyone seems so down on WD40. Before we had WD40, we had pretty much nothing but 3 in 1 oil, kerosene and ATF. I still remember the first time I used WD40. My Dad had bought a can for the gun shop. He said, "Spray some of this in that hole." Worked great for freeing up whatever it was that was stuck. Later he got some Break-free and some G96 gun spray. Those 3 items got an awful lot so use at our place and replaced kerosene and ATF in a Windex spray bottle as a general lube.

We could do worse!

I think if you go to their website, they have a list of hundreds of uses for it. Also a way of submitting something new.

Sorry, I didn't intend to trick anyone. Posted it because someone wanted to make his sneakers water proof.

Some people use Windex for arthritis also................

I bet WD40 is in the top ten of most mis-used chemical products on earth.

My Dad had arthoritis (sp) in his right elbow, used to spray it on and rub it in, claimed it did wonders, never tried it myself.

BD ..... I've heard that too for arthritis, etc, someone told me that the mobile home parks during Arizona winters smell like the WD40 factory with everyone using it. A lot of health hazard warnings about exposing yourself to it in various ways. This link below pretty much says otherwise, mind you I think it is published by the manufacturer ... but it does look pretty official and truthful like most stuff you read on the internet when someone wants to state their side of an issue.
