Too often when I reach for the can of WD-40 I find it has lost pressure. Or the smart straw thing fell apart.
Buying the tiny cans is expensive. Filling the liquid into a utility spray bottle works until the pump quits or leaks which happens all too soon.

What do you all use?

This.

Not only for WD40, of course.

**For what purpose? The WD-40 company manufacture a large range of
products for different applications. I use a couple of them for
different things:

If you're referring to the original WD-40, well, I rarely use it. It has
it's uses, but they are quite limited. I prefer to use specialist
products for specific applications. I haven't counted, but I reckon I
have at least 15 can of different spray products for different applications.

I don't use WD40 for anything.

Depends on what I want to do as to what I use.

For some general lube I sometimes use Dexatron ATF and kerosene mixed
50/50.
If you want a very degreaser and cleaner look the internet for Ed's Red.


Kroil for freeing up rusted nuts anda bolts. Heard PB Blaster is good
for that, but never tried it.

Well this doesn't solve your problem but LPS2 is much better.

I tape the straw to the nozzle. I mean masking tape (believe it or not it is the best thing) around the whole nozzle and then on to the straw, and then use a zip tie around the straw which is tightened by pliers. Well you take the cutter and nodlnees pliers and place them so you get maximum leverage. Make it "tick" one more time.

It is the nature of the material, not only are some parts possibly nylon, for which glue is prohibitively expensive, but the oil itself. I have considered high frequency welding but I do not know anyone who does that.

With WD-40 and even moreso with LPS2 if you put it in a non-pressurized vessel is will lose its aromatic components and thus some of its efficacy. Still beats most stuff.

Anything other than WD40. It's hard to find much that it's a good choice for. And IMHO aerosols are unjustifiably popular.

I use LPS-1, which is very similar to WD-40. it smells the same, and
seems to leave less of the sticky coating on things. I use it mostly for
eliminating water on metal parts, and also for preventing rust on tools.
I got it in a 20 Oz pump spray bottle, but I believe that spray bottle is
no longer sold. My original one had lasted for many refills from a 1 Gal
bottle.
