WD-40 Smart-Straw - A spray can revolution!
The innovative WD-40 Smart-Straw can now spray twice as perfectly, thanks to the foldaway straw on the spray head. To spray with pin point accuracy, e.g., during use as a contact spray or when caring for cylinder locks, simply insert the straw. For use on surfaces, e.g., when cleaning wheels or caring for garden tools, simply remove and fold the straw away. With the WD-40 Smart-Straw, no longer will you need to search high and low for the straw nor detach it in the first place. From now on, one hand will always be free.
WD-40 has a 5-fold formula:
1. Cleans and protects
Lifts stubborn dirt and residues from oil, grease and adhesives and allows them to be easily removed. Leaves behind a caring protective layer.
2. Silences squeaking
Optimally lubricates and frees moving parts, eliminates and prevents squeaking and creaking. Silicone-free, therefore no sticking.
3. Loosens rusty parts and seized-up mechanisms
Dislodges layers of rust, quickly releases stuck metal parts, screws, bolts and nuts.
4. Protects from corrosion
Leaves behind a thin protective film, which prevents the build-up of moisture and rust on metal parts.
5. Drives out moisture
Prevents electrical and electronic mechanisms from seizing up.
