Use WD-40 To Keep Appliances Fingerprintless

I got this idea when I took my sewing machine in to have a little tool up. The repairman told me he wiped it down with WD-40. I'd just brought a new stainless steel stove and couldn't get the fingerprints off of the doors after it was taken out of the box. So, why not?

I tried WD-40 and, boy o boy was I ever pleased. It took off all the fingerprints and water stains from washing it down. Thanks to Morgan, my sewing machine repair guy.

I'd think any type oil would do the same, veggie oil, olive oil, etc.

Yes, I'd be wary of spraying WD-40 around. It's flammable and irritating to the lungs, plus you wouldn't want to chance rubbing it in your eyes. Probably a regular vegetable oil would be better.

Holy moly, I'm gobsmacked that a Feather Weight repairman had the nerve to use WD40 on one of those precious machines! WD40 attracts lint and dust like a magnet. Wowsa! It also gums badly after too many applications, and is the worst thing you can use on a sewing machine, or a door lock.

FTR, the only oil to use on a Singer (or any other quality sewing machine) machine is an oil made specifically for sewing machines, and even then one should be wary that it really is sewing machine grade oil-lot of bad labeling out there right now.

WD40 is a great lubricant and rust block, but it is not good to use in ALL applications.

I use Avon's Skin-so-soft on my stainless steel stove and fridge. Works like magic. I personally wouldn't recommend it but my dad use to spray WD-40 on his hands and rub it in like lotion. He said is loosened his joints up from his arthritis. He swore by it though.
