WD 40 is a good product for some things.....for removing old rusty bolts/nuts or gettin old metal parts to loosen up.....I have used a 50/50 solution of automatic trans fluid and acetone for years. Never without it in my shop.....have removed 150 yr old bolts/nuts on old horse drawn vehicles many times over the years....works great.

A man quickly headed to Walmart before a job interview looking to buy some cologne. Not knowing which one to buy, he asked the employee which fragrances were purchased the most by other customers. The employee directed him to five standard fragrances, all of which the man then bought. However, not knowing which one in particular to put on, he doused himself with a mixture of all five. His job interview later resulted in him getting hired, despite his lack of experience in that field. Because of this the company's manager asked the recruiter, "What are you thinking? This guy doesn't know the first thing about what we do!" The recruiter then responded, "I don't know, but he strikes me as a man with a lot of common scents."

All great reasons why and how we use WD-40. I'm shocked that no one has mentioned the very best use of the multi-purpose product.
At some time, all of us have gotten cuts, burns, or scrapes on our Hands or other extremities while working in your Dodge the shop, building the fence, shoeing the horse, pulling weeds, driving nails, welding, etc. etc. A quick shot of WD-40 and immediately the pain is gone. Instant antiseptic pain reliever. Come on all young guys out there.

They tried to lower the VOCs

these or others were sold almost every where

I bought bulk WD-40, i still have a half of a full gallon container

I bought special cans of paint, that came in pint & quart cans.
the paint in those cans, was a special formula, made exclusively for the refillable cannisters.

Those cannisters could be charged from an air compressor.

I am glad that they changed over to the system with Low VOC.

I still have the refillable cannisters, they are in a box somewhere.

Whether it is WD-40, paint, or other product, there are ways to cut down on VOC

Like a container that WD-40 comes in

I've also used it salmon fishing. My uncle, god rest his soul, swore by it. We pulled in some lunkers, so I have no reason to argue.

Otherwise, I use it on a ton of stuff in the garage and around the house. Hopefully they can come out with a Canada and California version and allow us to continue to use the good stuff.

Now, if PB blaster changes, I will be depressed.

I knew a guy who sprayed WD-40 on his sore joints and muscles… true story. I’ve personally used it as attractive scent on salmon lures when down rigging.
From what I understand, it does not work well on impressing first dates.
