43 uses for WD-40

What Is The Main Ingredient of WD-40? 
Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient of WD-40? 
No Cheating….. 
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 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.   It’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.
