The new delivery method allows consumers to get WD-40 into tight spots or onto surface areas, without any potential for overspray or mess.

Many people love WD-40 for being an effective household cleaning tool, easily removing adhesive from picture frames and gifts, erasing crayon marks from floors, walls and counters, and getting rid of scuff marks on floors and other surfaces, said Tim Lesmeister, vice president of marketing for WD-40 Company.

The new No-Mess Pen is ideal for these household uses, as well as for lubricating everything from padlocks to pruning shears, and eliminating squeaks from wheels, sliding doors and hinges. We find both men and women love the No-Mess Pen because they can use one product to do all that, without overspray or mess.

The WD-40 No-Mess Pen is the third packaging line addition since WD-40’s inception in 1953; all three packaging innovations have been introduced in the last two years. Prior to the WD-40 No-Mess Pen was the 2005 introduction of the WD-40 Smart Straw, a can of the original beloved WD-40 formula that comes with a permanently attached straw. The first packaging innovation was the 2004 introduction of the WD-40 Big Blast can, featuring a wide-area spray nozzle that allows users to cover more area in less time.

The WD-40 No-Mess Pen can be found at retailers nationwide.
