Greetings Thrifty Friends,

If you have ever had to deal with a squeaky hinge, then chances are you've used WD-40. But if that's all you are using this amazing product for, then you are missing out.

WD-40 actually has dozens of uses that might be a surprise to you. If you have a can of WD-40 lying around the house, here are some neat tricks to save you time, money and frustration.

Keep pinchin' those pennies,

1. Polishing silver: If you have a collection of silver that always seems to tarnish over time, WD-40 can help you with that. Spray down your silver and wipe it clean. It's just that easy to keep it looking sparkly and new. Just don't use it on eating utensils without washing them carefully first.

2. Cleaning shoes: When it comes to sneakers, WD-40 is a person's best friend. In the winter, you can remove stubborn rock salt spots that build up by spraying them and wiping them down. If you want to make your whole shoe waterproof, spray the entire surface with the stufWf.

3. Cleaning toilets: Depending on the type of water in your house, cleaning your toilet can feel like a pointless task. If you use WD-40 the same way you would use your regular toilet bowl cleaner, you'll notice that it gets clean quickly and stays clean longer.

4. Unsticking gum: Chewing gum can get stuck on shoes and other surfaces and never come off. Spray it down with WD-40. That will help it come right off.

5. Defrosting ice: Whether you live in a cold climate year-round or you're gearing up for the winter season, spray your windows down with WD-40 and then wipe the excess away. Believe it or not, this will keep the ice from sticking to your windows and save you time getting out of the driveway in the morning.

6. Banishing tar stains: If your car gets covered in tar, just spray down the surfaces and even the most stubborn patches should melt away.

7. Removing water stains (on glass shower doors): It's so frustrating that the same shower you step into to get clean tends to collect a crazy amount of water stains. Follow up your usual cleaning routine with a spritz of WD-40 and watch the water stains disappear.

8. Removing stickers and price tags: If you have ever tried to peel off a sticker on a window or a bumper sticker on your car, you know what a hassle it can be. Using WD-40 makes it a breeze. Just coat the sticker and gently peel it away.

9. Removing tea and coffee stains: If you have ever spilled a coffee or tea on a table you know how hard it can be to ever get it out again. Combining your regular cleaning routine with a squirt of WD-40 will banish it in no time.

10. Remove lipstick: WD-40 as a pre-wash stain treatment will help remove lipstick from clothing easily.
