You need to remember WD-40 is a petroleum-based product, so don’t use it on anything in the kitchen without cleaning it thoroughly afterwards. Even still, if you’re trying to protect countertops, clean a fridge or keep a sink clean, it’s a great use for a product you likely already have sitting around.
