Maintaining your car with the help of WD-40!
So what does WD-40 do and how you can use it!
WD-40 is a penetrating oil and water-displacing spray, it is a multi-blend of lubricants, anti-corrosion agents and soil removal, it can:
- Dissipates water
- Prevents corrosion
WD-40 is excellent at preventing your car from deteriorating through rust and corrosion. The WD in WD-40 stands for “Water Displacement” So by spraying it on surfaces such as your undercarriage or wheels it will protect them, this is especially useful when living near the ocean due to salt, although salt doesn’t make metal corrode, it does however accelerate the rusting process because the electrons that cause this move more easily in salt water than they do in pure water.
WD-40 works wonders when it comes to getting rid of hardened grime on your car. Apply to the relevant areas and wait a few minutes then use a soft brush to scrub the area and then wipe it clear with a microfiber hand towel.
Here is a short list of some great places to use WD-40 on your car to extend its life.
- Use it on your door lock

- To get rid of old registration stickers
