    Originally designed as a Water Repellent for Nuclear ICBMs for the USA, this nifty little can of magic, technically called Water Displacement Formula 40 has found hundreds of applications in day to day life.

    So many that people have actually written books on how WD-40 can be used.

    Interesting story about the company, run by the same family that founded it. They never patented this chemical, so as to not disclose the formula and its secret.

    It's made in a lot of countries, however it's just bottled there. The chemical still comes from the parent company in US.

    Here are some of the uses that I have used it for -

    1) Squeaky gates, doors, Cupboards

    2) Drawers that don't slide out easy

    3) Locks that tend to stick or get jammed, door and bike

    4) Nuts that have rusted, and are hard to loosen.

    5) Tools that are showing signs of rusting, for that matter, bike parts as well.

    6) Removing chewing gum from shoe. Apparently it works on gum in your hair as well :p

    7) Spray a little on a cloth and wipe your wiper blades with it, will keep em soft, and squeak free!

    :cool: Chain cleaning

    9) Spray on areas where you don't want water to enter on motorcycle

    10)It cleans and polishes brass, silver etc.

    Anyhow here's a PDF detailing some of the applications you can use it for.

    Its the duct tape of the Spray World. And now easily available in India.

    Make one a part of your home, you won't regret it!

    Best bit for me, I like the sweet smell it has! :p

    Any major hardware store in Delhi, however I am surprised by the lack of any stores in Gurgaon stocking them. Best and reliable option is Chawri bazar, or else best order it online thru ebay.

    I got mine for 315 Rs, without any discount coupon.

    Price is between 230-250 rs for a 400 ml can

    WD 40 is top of the DIY list, every one in UK has some I'm sure. You can buy it in a litre can if you like, I clean by steel bin with that, works amazing! I have heard people say its a fish oil ;) also keeps my garage door work like a dream, as its got lots of mechanical stuff in it, I occasionally go mad over it. I bought it In India this time in100 ml can under 300, was so surprised how sad it was sitting in the shop corner. Clearly it's not been advertised properly.

    It's definitely hard to find. Most hardware store owners haven't even heard of it.

    ^^ Order online, best way I found to go about it. Though Chawri Bazar should be the place to check out. Some shop will surely have this in stock.
