2. Clean tiles - it will remove mascara, nail polish, paint, and scuff marks.
3. Scrub stains from stainless steel sinks.
4. Unstick gum. Very useful.
5. Soften leather.
6. Erase crayon. Spray on and wipe off. Wax on, wax off.
7. Prevent flowerpots from sticking when stacked together.
8. Get rid of rust.
9. Remove goo from price tags, duct tape, and stickers.

3. Paintball guns
4. Locks. The spray can prematurely wear down the internal mechanisms.
