Can you smell the fragrance of lemang in the air? Yes, it’ll be balik-kampung season soon as Malaysia celebrates Hari Raya Aidilfitri with the approach of the new Syawal!

Here’s wishing all Malaysians who celebrate this festive season a fantastic new year ahead from all of us at WD-40®. We also hope that those who will be traveling this period get home safely to meet their loved ones.

So before you hit the road to travel home to meet your loved ones, be sure to give your car a little tune-up, in ensuring you have a safe and smooth drive ahead.

If you have our wildly popular WD-40® Multi-Use Product at home, here’re some tips on what it can do for your car :

1) Remove grime from engines, gummy deposits from PVC vales, or grease caked onto the engine block and its compartment
2) Protect metals from rust and corrosion
3) Displace moisture from car wiring

(Just spray and leave on for all of the above treatments)

*Always ensure the engine is idle and cool, before you apply any car care products on your car*

Keeping a can with you in the car may be a good idea too, as the WD-40® Multi-Use Product is also GREAT with:

1) Helping to start wet engines, as it drives moisture away from flooded engines
2) Easing the removal of bolts and nuts. Think tyre puncture for example. Just spray onto the bolts and stuck nuts, and the tyre replacement exercise will be a breeze.

If you reckon you want a more thorough preparation job for your car — one that calls for a specialist — check out our WD-40® Specialist™ Automotive range.

From the bottom of our hearts, we wish you a truly Selamat Hari Raya!
