Shake can well before use

Sweethearts, despite various spanners in recent years’ works I lead a charmed life. Unlike those [bloggers] who can’t help themselves moaning and groaning over, say – and I truly love this – that they have bloggers’ block. How much more entertaining can it get? You have nothing to say and tell the world all about it. Take a leaf out of a mouse’s book. And keep quiet.

Anyway, lets unite in our assorted self afflicted boats and use WD40.

WD40 is a miracle. If I could WD40 all of you I would. After having WD fortified myself.

And I quote from the can

Multi-Use Product

  • Stops Squeaks
  • Drives Out Moisture
  • Cleans and Protects
  • Loosens Rusted Parts
  • Frees Sticky Mechanisms

At the bottom, and in my experience important, “See Cautions  on Reverse”

200 ml. Silicone Free.

Hugs and kisses,








  1. I was adviced to use WD40 recently to unscrew a holder ring for a lamp and marvelled at its efficacy. I subsequenlty learnt that my son Ranjan has been using it for long for various purposes and I just wished that he had kept me informed!

  2. Hurrah, I understand what you’re talking about.
    WD40? Wouldn’t be without it.

  3. There is a misconception that WD 40 acts as a lubricant. It doesn’t …… some idiot kept applying it to the locks on the allotment gates and they became increasingly jammed. We took out precious can of 3 in 1 oil and lubricted said locks, problem solved.
    Of course it drives out moisture… that is what it was originally designed for: Water Dispersant 40… As a solvent also it does clean surfaces… like our slate fire hearth but oil (linseed or 3in1 protects better….
    It certainlt doesn’t ease or free our stop cock….it is still jammed…. but the water board engineer’s special stuff for easing didn’t eork either and he tells me that WD 40 should not be used as it contaminates the water itself…

    • My dear dear Magpie, I mainly used WD-40 as a metaphor, wishing to oil the wheels of communication and life.

      However, when taken literally, you do surprise me since WD-40 has a million uses (other than lubricating life). A door’s hinges squeak? WD-40. You can’t break into your own car (in winter)? WD-40. I swear I could even unhinge myself by applying WD40.

      Your stop cock … correct me if I am wrong … I dimly remember it’s an ongoing problem of yours.

      As to contaminating water. This is one hell of a sore subject to me. I dare not go to the loo any longer. Or, worse, drink water from my kitchen’s tap. Quality control? What quality? I say this as someone whose first job was working for a lab analysing local water. it was soul destroying. Not because there was anything wrong with the water. But because in all my nineteen years on earth I had never realized that there is more to water than H2O.

      Lest my computer crashes in a moment I’ll send now,

      • And don’t forget it’s opposite: duct tape or as USians say : “duck tape”. Metaphoric also for those stuck and unable to move.

      • Water…. so easily contaminated… we have a filter tap, andconsidering that every drop of London Tap Water is said to have passed through sevn people before it secapes the confines of the pipes that sems liek a good idea to me….

        I have used WD$) for many things but its effects are rarely long lasting enough… door hinges always seem to develop their squeak again so…. three in one oil it is…very sparingly applied… as for frozen locks… meths or strong vodka sprayed in does the job too…. windscreen se icer also, provided it is based on methanol…. worked at age 19 for the manufacturers of anti freezes and de icers…. back in the 60’s the most heavily tested and inspected anti freeze was Castrol…when the plant was blending a batch then our lab was invaded by “Mr Castrol” who over saw all our testing and analysing and with the stroke of his ball pointed pen could condemn thousands of pounds of product… and he did.

        “Good manners. The WD 40 od everyday life” …. paraphrasing Grannie who said”.. lubricating oil of everyday life”

        For some reason i have a ditty in my head which goes Spray away spray spray spray away…
