Excellent for degreasing stainless cooker hoods and kitchen appliances.

It dries to wax and is never a lubricant.

I will let you tell them ... :lol:

Even if it was a wax, a wax can still be a lubricant (pure paraffin wax is used on my bike chain ;-))

WD :D

Tell them (WD40), not me ... :lol:

If it's a good or long lasting lubricant or not is another discussion.

Lots of things are lubricants, but if there good for certain applications is for the user to decide.

I wouldn't use lady juice on my chain, neither would I use WD40 on my lady ... But each serves there purpose very well :D

WD :D

I use it on my chain after washing. As a temporary measure. Otherwise I forget to lube it and then find a nice clean bike, with a stiff chain!

I heard that in the army if you use it on your gun you were put on a charge.

WD pro, I too have gone to Paraffin wax, no going back to owt else now!

That said, it does have its uses and if I'm in tesco I'll probably pick up a tin at that price.
