And it’s that combination that can be viewed as the ‘perfect storm’ behind many an issue which can arise at this time of year. A key one being the stiffening or, in some cases, the seizure of locks and hinges.
Adhering to the prevention better than the cure mantra, it is times like these that WD-40 Specialist® Degreaser and WD-40 Specialist® Spray Grease really come into their own.
Firstly, spraying those troubled areas with Specialist® Degreaser easily and safely helps to clear away any old residue. The solvent-based spray quickly removes stubborn soiling such as oil, grease, dirt and general grime without leaving any residue. It’s a case of simply spraying on and wiping off for a clean finish.
Once that is done, WD-40 Specialist® Spray Grease provides a long-lasting solution that ensures metal-on-metal work freely. Its high viscous formula doesn’t drip even when applied to a vertical surface like a car door hinge.
With reference to maintaining locks, spraying WD-40® Multi Use Product – the company’s famed product that has been the mainstay of many toolkits for more than 70 years – into the mechanism is advisable.
All products, along with all nine that sit within the WD-40 Specialist® product line-up, come equipped with WD-40’s ‘Smart Straw’ applicator that enable users two ways of spraying. Flipped up, the straw ensures direct precision application while flipped down allows for a wider angled spray that covers larger areas.
