Better than WD-40!? I think so, better than PBblaster. You be the judge.....

I was searching for a DIY cheaper alternative to expensive and quickly used up cans of wdforty and and PB blaster. Found this formula somewhere and saved the cliff notes. Sharing it with you good people.

Make a HOMEMADE 50/50 mix of

1. Brake fluid
2. Transmission fluid

Simple. Easy. Put in equal amounts in your choice of appropriate applicator, such as....

Put in a squirt lube type gun or, get a squirt bottle with viton or other oil resistant type seals for best results.

Apply liberally, as needed.

This penetrating diy mixture is cheap to make in bulk and will bust rusted bolts and nuts loose as well or better than PB blaster IMO.

Note: Give it some time to work, It just needs to sit and penetrate to do its job.

If this tip helps you and saves you money please post your comments below.

$$$ Show some love jeepers.

Give me a ****"LIKE"**** for sharing this with you. Thx

wd is not really for rusted bolts. I have heard that it was made to clean stainless steal? might be a rumor.

PB is not the best as well in a can. Kano Kroil would work better then PB, expensive though.

never tried this idea. but i have that stuff on hand anyway. but rust here in Az is like ocean front property. Its coming just very slowly....
So, folks, the point of this thread, has gone away from the original intent.

I am not advocating WD40 for rusted metal parts or that "water displacement 40" is or is not the abreviated term for the meaning of WD. Do some people use it for other things besides its stated and intended use, yes. Is it a rust buster by chemistry, no.

What I am saying is that the mixture of brake fluid and transmission fluid at a 50/50 equal parts mixture, applied liberally to rusted bolts and rusted, seized metal parts, works well to loosen and free rusted or rust welded metal parts, and at a lower price point than the cost of WD40 or PB blaster alone.

In other words its simply a DIY recipe that Ive found useful and thought Id ahare the information with others diy'ers so they can try this mix for these applications to keep money money in their wallets. Fair enough?
