Whenever I use WD-40, I notice it leaves an oily residue. I usually just clean it with a homemade all-purpose or degreaser spray, but I was wondering if anyone had any other ways that are perhaps a little easier?
Dawn blue dish liquid should work well for WD stains.
i do not know just where you are using WD-40 but Dawn generally removes most oily stains whether it is on clothing or other things.
Clothes - just put Dawn on the spot - wait a few minutes and wash as usual.
Anything else? - I accidentally got some on an outdoor picnic table and just used a wet cloth, couple drops of Dawn and it cleaned right up.
Since WD 40 repels water, first wipe away as much as you can with a cloth or paper towel. Then you can wash the rest away with a very soapy liquid like straight dish washing detergent or shampoo. Use it at first without diluting it with water.
