Great Product except for "Smart Straw"Oct 19, 2010
By R. T. Holland Jr.
"Three Creeks Farm"
I have used WD-40 for years.....as long as I can remember....and I am 68. However, I am so annoyed with this stupid "Smart Straw" I am considering looking for another similar product. The STRAW works fine....but when you fold down the straw, it doesn't spray...you just get a stream...wasteful if you're spraying tools. I have had ONE can that I bought with a Smart Straw that would spray correctly in the last year. If you can't live without WD-40, buy the gallon can and put it in a pump sprayer.

Knock, KnockFeb 03, 2011
By Edwin C. Pauzer
Who's there? I asked looking through the apartment door peephole. "It's me, Mike in apt. 108. Can you help me?" The neighbor was a quiet, shy kid who always hit me up to be a little league booster when he was younger. This time, Mike couldn't get the tumbler to move in his apartment door lock. I told him to wait while I went after my WD-40. I sprayed the hole, and like magic, Mike's key turned the tumbler around. His grin was a surprise at the product, and it was from ear to ear.
WD-40 has also worked on those fearsome rusted nuts on your wheel when you have to change tires, plus assorted other impossible tasks. It simply sprays the rust away. I read recently where it even removes the spray paint from cars without damaging the paint underneath. This is one of those products your home should not be without.
Here's what else it's good for:
* Protects silver from tarnishing
* Removes road tar and grime from cars
* Cleans and lubricates guitar strings
* Keeps flies off cows (Very important)
* Gives floors that "just waxed" sheen without making it slippery
* Loosens stubborn zippers or interlocking slide fasteners
* Restores and cleans chalkboards (Do teachers still have'em)?
* Untangles jewelry chains
* Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill
* Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing
* Removes tomato stains from clothing
* Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots
* Camouflage scratches in ceramic and marble floors
* Keeps scissors working smoothly
* Lubricates noisy door hinges on car doors or doors at home
* Removes black scuffmarks from kitchen floor
* Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows making them easier to open
* Rids kids' rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises
* Gives a children's play gym slide a shine for a super fast slide
* Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open
* Good for oven burns or any type of burn. It removes the burned feeling and heals with no scarring
I learned a long time ago that WD-40, WD for water displacement, and 40 because it was the 40th attempt that worked, was a Godsend.
You've heard the saying, "Say it, don't spray it," well,
spray this one.

It's like they need to include a training program for the stupid "Straw" :-)Dec 27, 2012
By Mark Cannon
Speaking as a long-time fan of WD-40 and as someone who I think isn't extremely stupid :-) ....I have to say that the "Smart Straw" is a disaster. I got the smart-straw version because when I went to buy a new can, that was the only kind on the shelf. Great product, awful new idea. If you can figure out how to consistently get it to do what you want it to do, and to KNOW where the stuff will be coming out from (and avoid having it squirt where you least expect it), you're a better man than I am! Frustrating, annoying....and messy. C'mon, WD-40, you can do better than this! They say it's so we won't have to worry about losing that little red straw -- but I never used that anyway. (Did you??)

The BEST Spray Lubricant - Highly Recommended!Apr 19, 2010
By C. F. Hill
We use a lot of WD-40 in our house and small business. This spray lubricant has so many uses, from oiling our kid's bike chains to fixing squeaky hinges, it is amazing how many things we find to use it on.
The new "Smart Straw" is a simple but very clever innovation that allows the WD-40 to be used in wide spray (for covering a large area or put on to a paper towel) or directed in a stream to a specific area (like into a mechanism), with just a flick of the nozzle. No more worrying about lost straws since it always attached!
This is a great product, made even better by the clever spray control "Smart Straw"!

Remarkable productMay 31, 2008
I had some rusted automobile bolts where I squirted on some WD-40. Still I could not get them to come loose after several minutes of trying with WD-40. Couple days later, I went to try again and remarkably they were all loose. They had all loosened up after being covered for a couple days with WD-40. No force required with the wrench where the nut and bolt had been stuck. I was impressed. It did still require some force, however, to turn the nuts the rest of the way completely off the rusted bolts.
I have a CHANNELLOCK needle-nose plier I use for fishing. It was getting rusty and tightening up. I put a few drops of motor oil on it and it still felt tight. After squirting WD-40 on it, it became totally loose. I had to wipe it with a paper towel because after squirting WD-40 on it brown rusty WD-40 liquid flows out from the plier. (I should look for some stainless steel pliers.)
I like the new straw with the pivot, too. The nozzle can be set in two positions, with or without the straw. Cool.
