Car Care Tips: How WD-40 Can Help Keep Your Car Clean

Posted March 29, 2013

You know the old adage – “If it moves and it shouldn’t, use duct tape. If it doesn’t move and it should, use WD-40.” But did they tell you if it’s dirty and it shouldn’t be, WD-40 will work just fine? In this month’s blog, we’re shifting from auto repair tips to further your WD-40 education to help keep your car looking magnificent!

Removes Tree Sap

During the summer, you’ll probably find some shade to park in when you go out -perhaps under a tree. However, parking under trees can sometimes be an invitation for trouble, as sap seeps down from the branches and onto the exterior of your car. These spots attract dirt, causing some unsightly spots on your exterior. A little bit of WD-40 can help remove this scum to keep your car looking fantastic.

Cleans Bugs

If you’ve ever been on a road trip, you know that it pretty much always ends with a plethora of bugs scattered on your windshield or grill. While clearing this off can be done in a few minutes at a gas station, sometimes you need something a little stronger than a simple window cleaner. Spray a bit of WD-40 on the rough spots of your grill or windshield and you will be out of that sticky situation in no time.

Chrome Detailer

When it comes to your car, keeping the shiny parts shiny should be of the utmost importance. Spraying WD-40 on a small rag and use it to polish the chrome sections on your vehicle. This will help you keep that new car shine and protect the body of your car for months to come.

Lubricates Gas Caps

A stubborn gas cap can make filling up your tank a stressful experience. WD-40 can make the process that much easier. Spray a little bit on your gas cap to make filling up a squeak-free process.
