Does wd 40 keep bugs away
Why WD40 should not be used: situations where this tool is more likely to harm?
We all know that wd40 is a remedy for all the "diseases" of technology, because it is credited with a simply stunning effect after application. But is it really so, and is it possible to use this remedy in a blue can right and left.
I know that the bucket is used not only in the garage, but also in everyday life, watering sour elements, a nozzle for fishing and much more.
Wd40 was invented in the last century, but still remains with the same composition. WD stands for "displace water", and there is not a word about lubricating effects. And despite this, many continue to use it for various purposes.
Let's look at the typical mistakes of car owners on the use of this miraculous remedy.
Polishing and creating a water-repellent layer. The anti-rain effect on the windshield greatly simplifies the movement during precipitation. Therefore, many people do not think about the consequences, process the windshield, and other glass elements of the car. And at first glance it will seem that it works. But while driving and especially in the rain, visibility will deteriorate significantly. In addition, in the summer, more dust and dirt will settle on the glass, which will negatively affect the review.
Polishing of headlights using wd40 has been encountered since the dawn of its appearance on store shelves. But, if the resulting effect can impress immediately after the operation, then it will only get worse later. The composition of the ledashka includes a solvent, which, after being applied to the plastic of the headlight, will begin to corrode the protective layer of varnish, and in the future they will only deteriorate more. In addition, due to the oil that is part of the product, dirt and dust will accumulate on the headlights, negatively affecting the lighting.
The blackening of tires, takes on a massive character among fans of showing off. Moreover, the tires look like new, which adds confidence on the road. But, it should be borne in mind that the ingredients included in the composition negatively affect rubber products. Although this will not affect immediately from the first application, it may affect in the future. And if you spray uncontrollably in the area of the brake discs, then there is a serious risk of being left without brakes at the most crucial moment, in case the wd40 hits the pads.
There are often cases of the use of a VED in the role of a cleaning agent of electrical contacts. For some reason, there is an opinion that wd40 has the property of removing oxides, but this is not entirely true. This liquid is a dielectric, and in addition, the oil film accumulates dirt, dust and increases resistance. The pad is not a lubricant, but it also does a poor job of eliminating creaks in the cabin. It is better not to try to fill rubbing elements with them, especially if they are plastic or rubber. Since the solvents included in the composition negatively affect the materials. The lubricating effect of the liquid lasts quite a short time.
Because of the solvent "wye-spirit" that was part of the liquid, many tried to use it as a bitumen stain remover. Most likely, bitumen will not be removed, but it is possible to harm the paintwork, plastic or rubber.
It turns out that the wd40 is not capable of much that is attributed to it, so it's worth thinking before taking action.
