Banish Stains From Your Patio Doormat With This Handy WD-40 Hack

If you're trying to banish stains from your patio doormat, you may feel exasperated if nothing you do seems to be working. You may even feel like tossing it away. However, it doesn't have to be such a difficult task. Rather than rubbing away at stains for what feels like hours, you can instead spray some WD-40 and watch it work its magic. As a result, you should be left with a doormat that looks as good as new. Not only is this hack incredibly effective at eliminating stains and a great way to clean your doormat, but it also shouldn't be too pricey either since you won't have to fork over any money to replace your doormat. 

Even better, the whole process doesn't take a very long time or require a lot of tedious steps, so it's perfect for any time or day. This gives you leeway in terms of when you want to fix the issue. Now, all you need to do is arm yourself with a can of WD-40, and you should be ready to go.

Apply some WD-40 on your doormat

In order to get rid of any stains, you'll need a can of the product. If you don't have one already, you can get one from Walmart for about $6. To begin the process, simply apply it where any marks are, being sure to spray it at arm's length. You should also ensure that you're either applying it outside or in an area with plenty of airflow. This will help to ensure you don't inhale the product. Once you're happy with the area you've covered, simply work it in with an old rag or cloth. You can always apply more if you feel as though it's necessary. Now, you just need to let it work its magic. After roughly 15 minutes, you should begin to notice that any marks should be long gone. If not, you can always repeat the same steps. When you feel satisfied, all you need to do is clean up the excess, and you should be able to use your patio doormat as usual.

The reason this hack works so well is because the WD-40 contains ingredients that help to dissolve stains, including those from your patio doormat. You can even use it to remove stains on your carpet, making it incredibly versatile. However, you should keep in mind that you may find residue in your doormat after using WD-40, so it's probably best to try other solutions first (unless you don't mind this).
