At Leafy, we make stainless, odorless, and clear lubricants that are great for multiple purposes.
We offer a variety of lubricants that are pretty self explanatory to make your life easier. Each lubricant is clear so it won’t leave stains or unpleasant odors behind (you’re welcome).
So what do we mean by self explanatory? For instance our Sliding Door Lubricant, Lock and Hinge Lubricant, and Garage Door Lubricant have their use right in the name. However, we have a General Lubricant that can serve many purposes. So we’re going to break down a few of its many applications.
Summer is here and warmer weather is constant! All of that to say, we can finally start doing more outdoor activities like biking!
If you own a bicycle, our General Lubricant will come in handy. After a long winter of paying no attention to your bike, it’s likely the chain has become rusted. Before you think about buying a new one, save your money and remember, Leafy has a solution.
Rusted Chains: The Ultimate Approach to Refreshing Your Rusty Chain
- Hang your bicycle upside down, or off the ground so that you are able to spin the wheel.
- Lightly apply, and spread out the lubricant onto each chain.
- Clean off the lube and rust with a cloth! Hello old t-shirt or shammy cloth if you’re feeling fancy.
- Backpedal the bike while wiping with a clean cloth of your choice. Do this to all the chains and rust spots.
Your bicycle will look like it did the day you bought it! Just remember to clean off all excess lubricant, as it can attract dirt.
What else gets rusty that our General Lubricant can fix? Bolts of Course!
The majority of us homeowners keep a box of bolts somewhere in the house. We like to think they will come in handy at some point, which is true. However, all that time away from your bolts leads to rusting and makes them hard to use.
Rusted Bolts: The Tried and True Method to Bring Them New Life
Before you think about going out and buying new ones, use our General Lubricant to get rid of the rust.
- Get as much dirt off as possible with a brush.
- Apply the lubricant onto the bolts letting it settle for a couple of minutes or longer, depending on the amount of rust.
- Once the lubricant has been settled and soaked, wipe off excess lubricant with a cloth of your choice.
- Apply more and repeat the process if some rust remains!
Now let’s deep dive the more directly titled lubricants. While their names make their purpose obvious some instructions are always a good thing.
Garage doors Lubricants:Get A Fantastically Quiet Door
- Brush or wipe any dirt off your garage door.
- Begin to apply the lubricant on all hinges, hanger tracks, cable drum, bottom brackets, torsion springs, and rails.
- Wipe down the areas you tackled with the lubricant with a cloth to rust.
- Finally, open and close the garage door to enhance mobility!
If you are not sure where each part of your garage door is located, there are plenty of online sources that can help you. As a general guide you can apply Leafy lubricant to any rusted part on your garage door.
Sliding Door Lubricants: Unlock a Smooth Sliding Door
- Clean off any removable dirt on the bottom or top of your sliding doors track.
- Apply lubricant to the track and wipe, removing any rust or stickiness.
- Once you think your door is lubricated and cleaned thoroughly, move the sliding door back and forth. This will enhance the mobility of your sliding door.
Lock and hinge Lubricants: No More Stuck Locks and Creaky Hinges
- Wipe off any removable dirt
- Twist your doorknob to the left and apply lubricant to the inside.
- Give it a couple of turns so that the lubricant is evenly distributed.
- Repeat these steps with your deadbolts and keyholes. Then apply lubricant to door hinges and open and close your door a couple of times to ensure mobility.
A little more on this lubricant! Our lock and hinge Lubricant is great because it is clear and will not leave any stains on your wood finishes. We know how easy wood stains, and how hesitant you may feel applying lubricant to wood surfaces. That is why we made sure to create a clear lubricant that prevents exterior and interior stains, while leaving a protective finish.
Not only do our lubricants prevent stains, but they also prevent an unpleasant odor. This is necessary especially when you are using our lubricant on the interior of your home. For example, you may be fixing the lock and hinge on your front door for a special occasion. I am sure you will not want your guests entering your home having an unpleasant smell.
With all of Leafy’s lubricants, you won’t need to worry about stains, odors, or guests trying to evacuate your home due to bad smells!
