Remedy Description

webmaster:beware wd-40 has kersoine in it..



I had a neighbor who had bought a new pickup. I got up very early one


morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides


this beige truck (for some unknown reason). I went over, woke him up,


told him the bad news. He was very upset and was trying to figure out


to do probably nothing until Monday morning, since nothing was open.


neighbor came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It


the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was


the truck. I'm impressed! WD-40 who knew?

Water Displacement #40.

The product began for 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


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.

When you read the "shower door" part, try it. It's the first thing that


ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just


well as glass. It's a miracle! Then try it on your stovetop... Voila!


now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.
