Amazing Uses For WD-40

This post was created thanks to my amazing husband (hey babe!). It was late one evening after a long day of work and an incredibly satisfying dinner when I started thinking out loud about post ideas. Awesome husband says "why don't you write a post about WD-40? There are so many ways that you can use it." Hmmmm WD-40... "That's a good freakin idea!" I shouted. This was the day, my husband birthed a post idea. Thank you husband! I hope this post makes you proud =P
