WD-40 has many household and automotive applications. One of the ways to use WD-40 is to use it to clean tar or bugs from a car's bumper, or adhesive and other residues from a floor or other household surface. WD-40 is very easy to clean once you have sprayed it on to a surface. Be sure to let it set for a few minutes if you are trying to remove a sticky substance.

Step 1

Examine the area with the WD-40 sprayed on it. Note the location of the substance and grab a soft cloth or towel.

Step 2

Wipe the affected area well with the cloth or towel. Turn it over to use the other side if the area is heavily sprayed with WD-40.

Step 3

Continue wiping until the WD-40 is completely removed. The area should be dry to the touch. You shouldn't be able to see the WD-40's residue. If you can, grab another clean towel and begin wiping again.
