Default WD-40 Use it for everything.....

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



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.



When you rea d 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!



1.. Then try it on your stovetop... Voila! It's now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.
2.. Here are some of the uses:
3.. Protects silver from tarnishing.
4.. Removes road tar and g rime from cars.
5.. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.
6.. Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making it slippery.
7.. Keeps flies off cows.
8.. Restores and cleans chalkboards.
9.. Removes lipstick stains.
10.. Loosens stubborn zippers.
11.. Untangles jewelry chains.
12.. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks. Cleans the fronts of stainless steel appliances (have personally seen the employees of Lowes use it on their appliances in the store to keep them new looking)
13.. Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill.
14.. Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden po ts from oxidizing.
15.. Removes tomato stains from clothing < STRONG>

16.. Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots.
17.. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.
18.. Keeps scissors working smoothly.
19.. Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes.
20.. Gives a children's play gym slide a shine for a super fast slide.
21.. Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on riding mowers.
22.. Rids kids rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises.
23.. Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open.
24.. Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to op en and close.
25.. Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as vinyl bumpers.
26.. Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles.
27.. Lubricat es and stops squeaks in electric fans.
28.. Lubric ates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling.
29.. Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps 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 prosthetic limbs.
34.. Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell).
35.. Removes all traces of duct tape.
36.. Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain.
37.. Florida's favorite use is: "cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers."
38.. The favorite use in the state of New York--WD-40 protects the Statue of Liberty from the elements.
39 .. WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a LITTLE on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time.

Also, 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 states.
40.. Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.
41.. WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.
42.. 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 re-wash. Presto! Lipstick is gone!
43.. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distrib utor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start.
44.. It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor! Use WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff marks

on flooring. It doesn't seem to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard to get them

off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.
45.. Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly! Use WD-40!

P. S. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL.

I use WD 40 a lot! I love the smell of it. My Mom tried it on her arthritis however and she said she could not tell a thing. Many claim it works for it but not for her.
