WD40 is not a lubricant!

That site's a joke, but in this case, it's true.

WD40's a water displacer (WD). Its "lubricating" properties are almost non-existent -- it's simply a PTFE-based formula, which leaves behind a film. PTFE has a low coefficient of friction, and is hydrophobic, which is useful for locked up nuts and stuff like that...but most definitely isn't the same as a lubricant.
In fact, as a solvent, it'll dissolve any existing grease, and as it penetrates, it'll cause more damage than good around any sort of sealed bearings which are already pre-greased for life.

Unfortunately WD40's managed to get into the public psyche that it's "for everything", and the company don't care about the misinformation that sells their product.
EDIT: Wow, completely wrong on my part about it being PTFE-based
Still worth remembering that, as a solvent, it'll break down existing grease, and what it leaves behind won't be comparable.

What 20 year old
I'm not sure if anyone else has tried this but this stuff works a treat on horsetail weeds. Apparently it breaks down the silicone in the plant structure.
I have this but the sprayer does not last as the wd40 destroys the rubber in the sprayer so you need to replace it
Who needs that much lubricator?

If you don't need it your doing it wrong!

I have a 300ml can. I'm pretty confident it will be more than enough to last a lifetime!

It's a Fast Release Penetrant as they say on the bottles or technically a Water Dispersal spray.
WD40 is a decent light lubricant for roller bearings in skateboards and the like and bicycle chains but needs applied very frequently.

It's film strength is too weak for almost anything else, even door hinges.

... because it's not a lubricant. They also sell lubricants which you can use for, um, lubrication and don't need to be reapplied every five minutes.

I might get one of these. I can use it and give it to the grandchildren when I'm done.

You cannot reusage modern condoms.

Older condoms like this are intended to be reused :

Yeah I got sent a video and the guy just sprayed it on 1week later it’s black and dead going to do this this weekend
Used to use it on wasps' nests as a kid.

Match and scoosh of WD40 = no more nest.

Best not to use on an attic nest of course...
If you have a coloured fibreglass front door were the colour has faded/dulled this works a treat.
Just rub it in with a cloth.

Ok, interesting, thanks. Presume you have to avoid getting it on plants you don't want to kill? Have a tin of WD-40 somewhere, I will give it a shot, if it works would be a lot less hassle than some of the proprietary horsetail weedkillers out there.
People go on and on about its effectiveness as a lubricant but they often overlook one of its best uses: as a degreaser. It's by far the best thing I've found to clean off a bike chain before applying fresh lube, all the dirt just falls away. Great for cleaning marks and scuffs out that soapy water can't deal with too.

I wasn't aware of there being any PTFE in WD40. You can buy a WD40 branded PTFE spray, but that's a completely different product (think they bought the 3-in-one company).

WD40 contains mineral oil and a lot of volatile hydrocarbon solvents.

I'd agree that you should definitely not put it on healthy sealed bearings as the solvents in it will wash the grease out and the oil it leaves behind is too light and not enough to replace the original lubricant, but if you've got a set of sealed bearings that are seizing in something like a fan, then it works quite well at freeing them up and getting it working for a few months until you get a replacement part.

WD40 is one of the manufacturer recommended lubricants for my front door lock (The lock contains stainless steel parts so the usual lock lubricant, graphite, must not be used).

Here's an article where they claim to have actually analysed the ingredients in wd40:- wired.com/200…-6/


WD40 was actually originally developed to provide corrosion protection for a liquid fuelled ICBM (missile).

Works well for keeping knobs operating smoothly.

Switches too.

Stop saying BS, there is no PFTE in WD40, simple reason is PFTE lubricant are expensive. WD40 is a sort of mix of oil and mineral spirits. WD40 should not be use as a lubricant for long term use as it doesn't have a sticking capacity. Try a PFTE lubricant you will see the difference.
Spray some on your knob, its really good, and if your nuts get stuck give them a squirt as well
