WD-40 Fan Club

Wd40logofinal3This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of WD-40. All opinions are 100% mine.

There are a few tools and items in every great Scoutmaster's garage. You've probably got a handful of tent stakes, two half-full bottles of camp suds, and at least one can of WD-40. Does anyone really even know what WD-40 is made from? I guess it doesn't really matter much as long as it works. :-) The point is that you have it handy because Scoutmasters are constantly called on to fix this, mend that, and make do. Projects are always popping up and scouts rely on you to help them learn to handle problems themselves. Since scouting gear is out in the elements so much, protecting from rust and getting rid of corrosion are two things that come up occasionally and WD-40 fits the bill.

Well, if you are already a believer in the magic of WD-40, you should Join the fun in the WD-40 Fan Club online. The fan club has just been launched and the WD-40 folks have packed their site with lots of fun and informative tips, videos, and member input. Members of their free club enjoy:

If you're feeling lucky today, how about entering a contest?  All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post, answering the following question:

"How do you inspire others to be leaders and problem solve problems?"

You can read the contest rules but the prize is about $50 worth of WD-40 items, including a "Now & Then Pack", baseball cap, and stainless steel travel mug.

One of the things I use WD-40 for is fishing.  Spray a bit on the lure and for some reason it often increases the hits. Watch the latest WD-40 video release and you'll see why I got a good laugh.

Another use that you may not know of, but could be quite useful for Scouters - WD-40 can take off the sticky residue from using Badge Magic! Now, THAT's a good use.  Protect anything metal from rust and corrosion, lubricate moving parts, dissolve gunk, even catch fish.

Wd-40 is the can with 1000 uses - what's your use?

I spray all our axes, saws, shovels and rakes after each outing to protect them from rusting. After wd-40 is applied wrap each in shrink wrap or plastic bag.

One of the ways we recruit leaders is to share how much the boys like having a parent involved. We meet monthly to discuss issues and ideas

The main component in WD40 is fish oil.

Sorry, just tried wd-40 on badge magic residue. Does NOT work.
