Thanks for the bonus Tip re: the satellite dishes, studedude. Great idea!

I agree. I rate WD40 right up there with duct tape. Two of the most useful products ever made.

Good tips, Pam!

WD40 is an excellent product to keep in the home and garage. I recently found that it's the best way to keep spiders from creeping in around windows and doors. Great tip, Pam!

Wow, that's very interesting! I agree, WD-40 is a great product that can be used in numerous ways. I always keep a can of it handy.

Anyway, thanks for the tip Pam! We don't use snow shovels around here but some of my family members up in Missouri would probably appreciate this tip. They get lots of snow up there so I'll pass it on to them.

Hmm ... I've never used WD40 but if it will keep the spiders at bay, I need to invest in this product. Is there a toxic odor when you spray it?

Good to know, the next time it rains here in the desert I'll remember that tip. Oops I forgot, I don't have a snow shovel...

Very mild. I have to put my nose close to a fresh spray to smell it.
