I promise you, this is not another post about a 55-gallon drum of sex-lube found on Amazon — though that still makes me smile. No, I want to talk to you about WD-40 and why you should buy something different. Don’t get me wrong, I like WD-40 just fine, but I have found a much better lubricant.
I’ve actually been using it for years as my local locksmith got me hooked on it. It’s a fantastic lubricant, and I use it just about everywhere. Squeaky doors, stuck bolts, garden tools, knives (high-carbon knives I keep in my go-bag will rust so I keep a thin layer of CorrosionX on them so that they don’t, you know, rust). I don’t know much about the science all over the CorrosionX website, but I can tell you I won’t buy WD-40 over this stuff.
Amazon, stupidly, doesn’t have the aresol version for sale on Prime, but they do have nice three pack of a pump sprayer version — which I didn’t know existed. (I will note, I have found it cheaper in stores locally than those Amazon prices. Plus, a three pack? Who the hell needs that much?)
