Yes, amazing stuff.I remember a number of years ago they asked folk to let them know of the unusual uses WD40 had been put to and it seemed that everybody reached for it for anything and everything.Not sure about using for relieving pain though.

I'm confused as to how it can "make a child's slide more slippery" but " Shine a floor WITHOUT making it slippery". Not sure I'd rush to try that one smile
