Clever uses for WD-40 around the home

For some 60 years, people have been using WD-40 to fix a variety of problems. Whether you're degreasing a bike chain, lubricating a sliding door, or removing water stains from the toilet, it's likely that you've discovered the magic of WD-40 in one way or another. The water-displacing spray can be utilized both in the house and on the job.
