3. Remove Hard Water Stains From Glass Shower Doors
Just spread some WD-40 on glass shower doors and the soapy grime and watermarks will not get a chance to build up.
4. Remove Stickers And Stuck-on Adhesive Easily
First, you can just remove the excess of the label if it is not glued all around the label. If the label is plastic-type, you con try spraying while lifting the label as it will not break. The plastic label should be easier to lift off than the paper ones. When you have exposed the glued on an area of the label, spray it with WD-40 and leave it to soak for some time. Then use a sponge or scouring pad to scrub away the glue and paper residue.
5. Remove Stubborn Rings From Fingers
If for any reason a ring is on your finger and is stubborn to come off, spray some WD-40 on that finger and it will slide right off.
6. Remove tea and coffee stains from countertops
Wipe away tea and coffee stains from countertops with WD-40. Spray a little WD-40 on a sponge or damp cloth and wipe the stain away.
7. Squeaky Doors, Scissors … Everything
Just spray a WD-40 in the joint area of the scissors or on the door hinge. This will keep the scissors working smoothly and the door will stop squeaking.
8. Remove Chewing Gum From Fabrics
If chewing gum gets stuck on any cloth, rag, clothes, shoes or even your carpet. Spray some WD-40 on the gum and let it spread to the base of the gum. Allow it to soak in a little bit and just lift off the gum. If there is any residue of gum you can use another rag of cloth to rub out the residue by adding a bit more WD-40 to it.
9. Best Limescale Remover
Remove all that limescale from your kitchen sink and face basins with just a touch of WD-40. Wet the area and it will soften in minutes, scrub away with scouring pad or toothbrush.

Don’t let ink or other stains ruin your fine carpet. Spray the stain with WD-40, wait a minute or two, and then use your regular carpet cleaner or gently cleanse with a sponge and warm, soapy water. Continue until the stain is completely gone.
11. Prevent Snow Buildup on Windows
During winter the snow gets onto our cars and house windows and obscure our vision of the outside and can cause an accident while driving. Prevent snow buildup on windows by glazing them with WD-40.
