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.

      We all know good ole WD-40. This one has the spray and flip up straw. I like it because I don't lose the straw after the first time I use it.

      I use WD40 for everything. Even to get grease off of my hands. Inhibit rust under vehicles. Make removing rusted nuts and bolts easier. Bust up corrosion on batteries.

      WD-40 is great, but Smart Straw not so great.

      By 

      from Utah

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

      I have bought the WD-40 brand for years. Always liked how well it lubricates. The can it comes in though is just bad. I have owned 3 cans with the Smart Straw and never had one that works right. They all eventually start leaking down the straw and quit spraying.

      I have used this product for years without a problem, I now have three cans ea. 1/2 full that will not spray. I am now buying a competitors product (CRC) without any problems and it is cheaper, this product is not what it used to be.

      oops! a Problem!

      By 

      from Vacaville, CA, United States

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

      I love WD-40, have for years, but my can stopped spraying! It's clogged! Anyone have that happen to them???? With the smart straw up or down, it just started to plug up! It's almost 1/2 full, but doesn't make the aerosol spray noise, how can I clear it? I clear hairspray nozzles by holding them under hot water, can I try that? Should I stick a pin in the hole? HELP!!! I refuse to throw it out, and won't buy a new can until I get an answer from you! Until I'm sure this won't happen again!

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

      I now have 2 half full cans of this laying around. Ran out of propellant again, never had that problem with the original style can top. Guess i'll try the non-aerosol version hopefully that works. Sometimes I wonder if companies even test this stuff for more than a day.

      1/2 can wasted-won't spray

      By 

      from Santa Rosa, CA, United States

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

      I threw out 2 half cans that stopped working. I watched the videos-no good, Both were "smart straw" cans-JUNK. Will never buy theses again. WD 40 has been around a long time but your new stray cans while it sounds good on paper are uneffective. I might consider the regular spray cans but I advise against these!

      I don't like the flip up straw. It's messier and sprays out the top of it's not up or down all the way.

      • 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?
