Cleans and protects miniature golf gear
Softens and cleans netting on lacrosse sticks
Refurbishes antique fishing lures
Helps remove stuck prosthetic leg
Lubricates adjustment knob on overhead projector

lines from 2000 uses for WD40

(via the ultimate insult)

Comments: wd40

'Adds moisture to and preserves ivory and bone items'. Good news here for poachers & surgeons.

A nice piece of what Ballard called "invisible literature" - the language of instruction manuals, ads, catalogues, reports and forms, brochures and news media, which paints a portrait of a society as detailed and nuanced as the best fictional literature.

I'm saving the 2000 uses list as a source of improving suggestions for appropriate occasions.

I have been using WD40 to lubricate my electic clocks - afterwards I suffered respiriatory problems - I wonder if I am slightly asthmatic? will you investigate as this is quite disturbing?

Was just about to use it to remove permanent marker off soles of shoes.
Might heed your warning.
There must be a downside to something with 2000 amazing uses.
