WD-40 Co., maker of WD-40, the well known all-purpose lubricant and problem solver, has introduced the ‘Smart Straw’. Finally, a way to prevent losing the little red straw. Consumers have been asking for this, the company acknowledges, adding that it figures more than 80% of WD-40 users have lost the straw at some point. The new Smart Straw involves a new packaging design. It comes in a 12-oz can and sprays two ways: as a stream through the permanently attached straw for hard-to-reach jobs, or with the straw is folded down, via a wide-area sprayer to cover larger surface areas.
