    What is the main ingredient of WD-40 ?

    Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient of WD-40 is?

    Don’t lie and don’t cheat. WD-40 . Who knew?

    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’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 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. It’s the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door . If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass . It’s a miracle! Then try it on your stove top . . . Viola! It’s now shinier than it’s ever been . You’ll be amazed .
