HEY EVERY ONE...YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS: ----- Original Message ----- JAY BOWEN

Well, Who Knew?

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, who knew?

Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for a rust
preventative solvent and d 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 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 stovetop...Voila! It's
now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.

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.

19) Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly.

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 andstops
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 distributor cap, it would displace the
moisture and allow the car to start.


P.S. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL.


P.P.S. I keep a can of WD-40 in my kitchen cabinet over the stove. It is
good for oven burns or any other type of burn. It takes the burned feeling
away and heals with NO scarring.
