Just in case you have forgotten this –(received it years ago but needed this reminder.)

This is worth sharing.
It cleans everything.

Subject: WD-40

Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient

of WD-40? No Cheating…

I had a neighbor who bought a new pickup. I got up very early one
Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around
the sides of this beige truck (for some unknown reason).

I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news. He was very upset
and was trying to figure out what to do…. probably nothing until
Monday morning, since nothing was open. Another neighbor came out and

told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It removed the unwanted
paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on the truck.
I was impressed!

WD-40 who knew?

"Water Displacement #40".

The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and
degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953, by three
technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes

from the project that was to find a ‘Water Displacement’ Compound.

They were finally successful for a formulation, with their fortieth
attempt, thus WD-40.

The ‘Convair Company’ bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile

parts. Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in
WD-40 that would hurt you.

When you read the ‘shower door’ part, try it. t’s the first thing that
has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works

just as well as on glass. It’s a miracle! Then try it on your
stove-top. It’s now shinier than it’s ever been. You’ll be amazed.
