a friend just emailed me this..

do Americans call it WD40 too?

Quote:


Subject: WD40.


Almost everybody I know has a can of WD 40 tucked away somewhere and they seem to last forever, but perhaps they wouldn't last half as long

if we used them for just some of the ways listed below. Give it a try.


This is well worth knowing

What is the main ingredient of WD-40?


Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient of WD-40 is ?


I had a neighbour 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 neighbour 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 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...
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 stove top ... Viola! It's now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.


WD-40 uses:
1. Protects silver from tarnishing.
2.. Removes road tar and grime from cars.
3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings..
4. Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making them slippery.
5. Keeps flies off cows. (Who found that out?)
6. Restores and cleans chalkboards.
7. Removes lipstick stains.
8... Loosens stubborn zippers.
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.
13. Removes tomato stains from clothing.
14. Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots.
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 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.
19. Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly! Use WD-40!
20. Gives a children's playground 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 open 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. Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans
28. Lubricates 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 favourite use is: 'cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers.'
38. The favourite 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 rewash. Presto! The lipstick is gone!
43. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start.
44. Helps repair broken Chain Saws so you don’t have to buy new ones.


P.S. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL. And it was on local TV about 2 yrs. ago, that a chap in Lincolnshire has used it on his knees as he

could not walk very well and had to give up playing golf. He was told to rub in some WD40 for a few days, and was soon able to walk etc.

better than he had for a long time, and as it is fish oil it gets to the area quicker than by capsule form.

Yup, same thing in the States and Europe. It was developed in 1953 by Dr. Norm Larsen, founder of the Rocket Chemical Company, in San Diego, California.
WD-40, abbreviated from the phrase "Water Displacement, 40th formula," was originally designed to repel water and prevent corrosion, and later was found to have numerous household uses.

It's good stuff, normally there's a can around here all the time. It's a must for loosening rusted bolts, locks, squeaky doors, cleaning engine gunk and more stuff I can't even think of at the moment.

Hmmm? i wonder why Liquid Wrench wouldnt be available where you are? i mean like it pre-dates WD40 by like 12 years and i would think that they would want their product everywhere possible?

Seriously we have a often used door that was squeaky and creaking and irritating as hell especially at night and i sprayed it with a little bit of Liquid Wrench Silicone and it hasnt made a sound in over a year...

Maybe that brand isn't available here, but I'm sure there are equivalent products.
