Growing up, I remember my parents using a can of WD-40 to grease up a door hinge that was too noisy and being amazed that it actually worked (As a kid, the smallest things impress you). Now that I am older and running a household of my own, I was surprised to find out that there are so many surprising ways to use WD-40 around the home. Check them out and see if any of these can help you out.
