    always keep some on hand

    WD 40 Is one of the best lubes out there. I always have some in stock. I have tried others but I always come back to WD 40.

    WD 40 Is one of the best lubes out there. I always have some in stock. I have tried others but I always come back to WD 40.
    Try it for leather waterproofing and conditioning in your outdoor/camping/sports/recreational equipment.

    I used to love this product, with the old cans with a straw hooked to the side. This new design is terrible. I bought a can, and after using half it decided to quit spraying. So i bought another can, it did the same thing. I decided to give it one more try, and to no avail, another can quit spraying once it was half used. I'm not the only issue. I have watched friends smash these cans into the ground or throw them across the shop they were so mad due to the same exact thing happening to them multiple times. I now buy the penetrating lubricant on the same shelf for half the price and it works until the can is empty and does just what I need it to do. I have tried returning these cans to the store, I collected all of mine, my friends, and families half empty cans (10+ cans) and put them in a box and took them back to where i purchase them. They told me there was nothing they could do about it. I will never purchase this product again.

    Cans stop spraying half full

    By Bob Ra

    from MA

    Comments about WD-40 Smart Straw 12 oz. Aerosol:

    Great producer BUT I have 2 cans, half full which will not spray. Your site says this is common in this industry, then sell for half the price since we only get half the product to use.

    Doesn't work, can leaks at joint

    By notneeded

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about WD-40 Smart Straw 12 oz. Aerosol:

    No liquid comes out of the straw or the spray nozzle, instead it leaks from where the rotating joint meets the can and oozes out onto your hand.

    Leaky can

    By donnapete22

    from Oberlin, LA, United States

    Comments about WD-40 Smart Straw 12 oz. Aerosol:

    Have never had a problem like this before......works great, always has, BUT, had a can setting on a shelf in my storage room, not too hot or too cold, and it somehow leaked, a lot. Ate paint off of another can of whatever, dripped down the shelves and pooled onto other shelves and some plastic trays....hardened a little, was easy to scrape off with minimal effort, but actually pitted one plastic tray while another type of the same make was unharmed.....never had this happen before and have had cans set for multiple years, way longer than this one......???????????any ideas why?????

    "Smart Straw" is Absolutely Useless

    By Rbobhowe

    from Massillon Ohio

    Comments about WD-40 Smart Straw 12 oz. Aerosol:

    I bought several cans of WD-40, intrigued by the Smart Straw---and was immediately disappointed. Upon my first attempt a small rubber washer fell out of the supposedly Smart Straw; I attempted to replace the washer, but the plastic parts of the straw are so soft that pieces were no longer able to be rejoined. My second attempt: the WD-40 sprays everywhere EXCEPT through the ports on the friggin' straw. What a complete waste of product--I am sorely disappointed. I'm off to dig through the recycling to see if I can locate the old spray nozzle from my last old-style can...

    This is literally the worst product ever

    from San Antonio, TX, United States

    Comments about WD-40 Smart Straw 12 oz. Aerosol:

    Don't buy this. It only works to spray oil all over your hands, body and eyes. The smart straw is anything but - what a poorly designed product.

    Second Time

    By Jimba

    from Sarasota, FL, United States

    Comments about WD-40 Smart Straw 12 oz. Aerosol:

    First time I thought it was better than sliced bread. SECOND time a few weeks later WD 40 came out where you press it and it ran down my arm. I now have a can 99% full that I am unable to use. Did you test this container? How Many? Just a piece of JUNK!!!

    Great Product

    Comments about WD-40 Smart Straw 12 oz. Aerosol:

    Years ago when wd40 first came out a friend who worked at a auto parts store recommended it to me, I've been using it ever since. I keep a can in my work shop in the basement and another in the garage. It is a great product for many uses.

    great product

    By ccotmon

    from Lauderdale Lakes, FL, United States

    Comments about WD-40 Smart Straw 12 oz. Aerosol:

    My name is James. I use WD 40 to keep spiders from re-building webs in my screened in swimming pool. If one sprays the beams that prop up the screens, spider webs do not stick. I live in south FLA, and now is rainy season.Much to my surprise the WD40 remained in tact and no spider webs after three weeks! I also removed webs from other parts of the pool area and the webs were back in two to three DAYS!! Only the areas where I sprayed WD40 are there NO webs!! Thanks WD40 for a great product.

    Bring Back The Old Straw!

    By LTSGNM

    from New Mexico

    Comments about WD-40 Smart Straw 12 oz. Aerosol:

    These new cans run out of propellant with half of the product still in the can. Numerous other reviewers have reported the same problem. I now have 3 cans of used WD-40 that are half full. There won't be a fourth! The old "Stupid Straw" worked much better.

    I purchased a can of WD40 a while ago and the product is great but I can never get all of it out the can, even with the smart straw.

    • Q:

      Lately when I've been placing my key in the iginition it has a hard time turning. I've done the whole lock/move steering wheel and other tricks, but typically if I just keep inserting it and turning it,eventually it works....after about 5-10min of trying! Someone mentioned to me that I might want to try using graphite spray. Shoud I try that, or what about WD40?
