    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 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..." IT IS MADE FROM FISH OIL"
    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`is a miracle! Then try it on your
    stovetop... It is now shinier than it has ever been before.
