  • It can smoothly remove sticker residue. If you have new glasses, plates or any type of dinnerware, you can use a dab of WD-40 to remove labels and price tags without hassle. You can also use it to remove labels from jars you plan on recycling.
  • It's fingerprint-proof! Do you hate prints on steel appliances as much as we do? WD-40 may also be used to clean and repel fingerprints from stainless pieces. Use a paper towel to buff it in.

  • It can remove mildew. If you have stubborn mildew spots on your refrigerator or dishwasher gaskets, all you have to do is apply some WD-40, let it sit for a bit, and wipe it off. It will surely be good as new.
