Tech Tips: WD-40 and Windex

Mar 1, 2014 6:30 AM, By Doug Irwin, CPBE DRB AMD

Recently I was trying to find the bottle of Goo-gone around our shop and I simply couldn't locate it. One of my colleagues pointed out that WD-40 works almost as well - especially in a pinch. You probably would flinch - as did I - at having the unmistakable smell of WD-40 left over on a rack panel or rack shelf. Well, the second part of this trick is that Windex is very effective at removing the WD-40 residue (and its smell).
