A small amount of WD-40 sprayed over your accessories can help them look as new as the day you got them.

Shoe Shining
With WD-40, the ingredients act as a solution to avoid dirt and salt spots that can build up over time, and can actually turn your shoes waterproof!

Removing Gum
Oh no! You’ve only gone and stepped in chewing gum in your brand new shoes. Now you’re stuck with a stick all afternoon.
Once considered the kiss of death for shoes, WD-40 can be used to help soften the nuisance, in the same way it protects your shoe from salts.

Toilet Cleaner

If you ever run out of conventional toilet spray to wash down the bowl, you can always grab a can of WD-40 and apply it how you usually would.

There’s nothing worse than turning up to a dinner party with a ripped label, so don’t. It’s that simple.

Unzipping Your Fly
WD-40 works wonders on zips that refuse to move. What can be more annoying than your bag failing to carry your items by not closing?
Or your trousers that have an embarrassing fault? Apply some spray and watch them switch back into action.

Cockroach Repeller
Next time you see an unwanted houseguest in your home, spray some WD-40 on it. Turns out, it can act as a repellent to cockroaches and insects that might find themselves in your home.
Make sure to spray it in the corners that attract the most amount of bugs – like cracks, pipes, gaps, or window frames. Before long, you’ll be left alone at night.
