Can You Imagine the World Without WD-40?

From the days my dad sent me to fetch the blue can to the days I worked offshore, WD-40 always seemed to be the solution. You would concur if you had your squeaky door hinge muted, stiff bicycle chain oiled, rust removed and tools shining like brand new all with same spray. 

Best of all, it makes me solve what seems like will take 10 burly guys to do without scratching my manicure. And in case you are wondering, WD-40 doesn't mean the WonDer solution was founded by a 40-year-old person. It stands for Water Displacement at the 40th attempt of creating the recipe. Living up to its name, the American brand very well displaces water, preventing rust and oxidization.

Many brands have attempted to emulate WD-40 whether in performance or packaging but the Real McCoy is always proven through its legendary results. Albeit its millions of uses, WD-40 pushed its limits by producing the Specialist range which is close to packing a mechanic into these cans. Other high performance products would be the Contact Cleaner that zaps out dust in electronics and Air Conditioner Cleaner that is bound to save you that technician's service cost.

The hardware company will undertake the sales and distribution of all products registered under WD-40 including the populare multi-use product, Specialist range and Bike range. WD-40 expects sales of 2 million cans in 2018 with this partnership.

I have always known of WD-40's extensive uses but the brand has very much exceeded my expectations. The more I learned about its products, the more excited I was thinking about how many more things I could fix at home all by myself, not to mention the amount I would be saving on hiring services.
