Many of us probably have a can of WD-40 lying around in the toolbox or garage. And while it’s a great product to use for machines, what we don’t realize is that WD-40 has a lot of household uses that we are not aware of. Here are 10 ways to use WD-40 around the house that you’ve never thought of before.
1. Polishing Silver
If your have some of your silverware or silver jewelry stored in a cabinet for quite a time now, you’ll find that some of it will start to tarnish as time goes by. A bit of cleaning from time to time will stop the tarnishing from occurring but if you find the it has already started to tarnish, a dash of WD-40 will take care of it in a snap. Start by spraying the WD-40 onto your silver pieces, leave them on for a few moments, and then gently clean by brushing with a spare toothbrush. Wipe with a wet cloth, and then dry as usual.
