What interesting use have you found for WD-40

Aside from the normal uses for the stuff, I have used it as a hand cleaner when my hands get a bit grease.....and it works well as a bug shield on the coach.
But I am sure a lot of you folks have some interesting used and would like to share them.

It makes a starting fluif for diesel tractor. Dissolves pine resin. As a hairspray - not so good!

Cleans my tools. I don't use it for anything else as it's not a good lubricant. I use Tri-Flo for lubrication - much better than WD40.

play havoc with yellow jackets in their little underground tunnels however. (EPA will probably send me a nice note after reading this) I just hate to get close enough to spray the little buggars. I always seem to lose that little red tube taped to the side of the can within the first few uses.

WD-40 removes crayon from walls. Does not leave a mark.

I also lost the tube many times... Newer cans have it attached,,, hinged... Got hit 7 times in one day by the little insects pounding fence posts in our new yard. ... That Hurts !!!! Went out early the next morning and found the holes,,, burned them out... (off subject,,, sorry) Next time it will be a 12 gauge.....(country here) WD 40 is still good for lots of things in my book, mainly temp lubrication, but there is better stuff now days.
