    Yup, spray a lot of WD40 on, let it sit for about 10 mins, hit it with boiling water, repeat with scrub brush if necessary

    Yea so I know airguns aren't super hot in the states but with spring powered guns you can do what's called "dieseling" basically you squirt a bit of WD40 or what have you up the skirt of the pellet, when you fire the compression ignites the oil (like in a diesel engine) and there ya go. Ton of fun, not super consistent. Illegal in the UK though, so obviously I have never done this you understand, only heard about it... Never done it, nope, never, not me, nuh uh, no sir.

    showed my wife this after she tried the stainless polish on our fridge and looked like crap. After I was done with WD she said WTF, looks awesome. She then grabbed me and took me upstairs and had her way with me.

    Well, maybe not, but thats what I was hoping

    Lubricating door hinges with a lubricant will give you much better results. WD40 is good at removing lubricants

    Works great for shower for cleaner and helps keep the waster spots from forming so quickly.
