  1. Hi Jan, that is a lot of good uses, and I have a can. Maybe next time my knee is hurting or I have bugs on my car, I’ll give her a whirl. I’ll let you know. Deb

  2. I can’t believe that it won’t make my kitchen floor slippery. But some of these are worth trying. Thanks!Hey, I’m working on that tiny dress. Will be working on it again today for use as the continuing photo tutorial on my blog. Do you mind? I think I’m making the 3 or 6 month size.

  3. I would love to know who the person was that saw a bunch of flies bothering a cow and said, “You know what? If I spray the cow with WD-40 maybe the flies will go away!”Now that person is a CREATIVE thinker! :0)

  4. Deb – I’m not sure I’d spray WD-40 on my skin, but that’s just me. Flea – I know. Not sure If I’d spray it on my floor either. What dress is it you are working on? Looks like fun. Kay – I’ve never gotten crayons on clothes before. Robbie- I think it was a bunch farm kids with nothing to do. Probably teenage boys. 🙂

  5. Hmmm – I especially like that it keeps bugs off cows. LOL. I’ll have to try it on my knee – but I suppose it’ll smell – but maybe it’ll keep the mosquitos away???Hugs.

  6. Lol, this is an amazing list. I’ll have to sneak the W-D 40 away from my husband. Reminds me of all the myriad uses for baking soda. (Which I’ve plum fogotten!)

  7. It removes all traces of duct tape, hmm… So when I tie my kids to their chairs, so they will finish their school, there won’t be any residue on them or my chairs! 🙂 LOL! Great info, Jan!
