i read this on another forum. but its a great read..


WD-40....Who knew!!


I had a neighbor who had 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'm 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 successful with the fortieth

formulation, thus WD-40. The Corvair 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.
