Cheap rescue

Water Displacement, 40th Attempt—our friend WD-40—is mostly fish oil.

It removes wet paint, leaving dry paint underneath intact.

Other uses are legion. Removes tar from the car chassis. Makes floors looked waxed without being slippery.

Lipstick stains cannot survive.

Removes tomato stains.

Lubes all noisy parts. Some say even arthritic parts, like knees.

Makes windows easier to open. Same for sliding doors. Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.

Keeps pigeons off your balcony (the smell).

Attracts fish. Spray it on your lures.

Got a fire ant bite? You know what to do.

Gets crayon stains off walls.

The best one? Gets those stupid price stickers off!

I read this list to my kid and she said, “We’re out. We need another can.”
