‘Water Displacement No. WD-40′

A neighbour bought a new van.

One Sunday morning some vandal spray-painted red all around the sides of this white van. The owner was upset and was endeavouring to work out what to do?
Some one told him to get some WD-40 and clean it off. It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm the paint that was on the van.
Who worked out how do that?

Who worked out how do that? 

‘Water Displacement No.  WD-40′ began from a search for 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. It’s the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower screen. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as on glass. It’s a miracle! Then try it on your cooker top.

It’s will be cleaner than it’s ever been.

Here are some other uses for WD-40:

1. Protects silver from tarnishing.
2. Removes road tar and grime from cars.
3. Cleans and lubricates guitar 20 strings.
4. Gives floors that ‘just-waxed’ sheen without making them slippery.
5. Keeps flies off cows.
6. Restores and cleans blackboards.
7. Removes lipstick stains.
8. Loosens stubborn zips.
9. Untangles jewellery chains.
10. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks.
11. Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill.
12. Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing.

15. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.
16. Keeps scissors working smoothly.
17. Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes.
18. It removes black scuffmarks from the kitchen floor! All those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It will not harm the finish and you won’t have to scrub nearly as hard to get them off. Open the windows if there are lots of marks.
19. Dead insects will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly!
20. Gives a children’s playground gym slide a 20 shine for a super fast slide.
21. Is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.
22. Also, if you’ve discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick spots with WD-40 and rewash.

23. Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open.
24. Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close.

28. Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling.
29. Lubricating fan belts on washers and dryers, will keep them running smoothly.
30. Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools.
31. Removes splattered grease on stove.
32. Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.
33. Lubricates, and cools prosthetic limbs and gives them a fantastic gloss.
34. Keeps pigeons off the balcony, as they hate the smell.
35. Removes all traces of duct tape.
36. People even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain.
37. WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a little on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time. It’s a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just that purpose.
Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some rivers.
38. Use it for gnat and mosquito bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.

39. If you spray the garden pots around the sides it stops slugs/snails eating your plants.

40.   Removes chewing gum from anything.

A person does not have to be behind bars to be a prisoner.  People can be prisoners of their own concepts, choices and ideas.  So tell the negativity committee that meets inside your head to sit down and shut up.
