Look what I found about WD 40

Discussion in 'Electrical Engineering' started by Theidiot Tecumseh, Jun 19, 2008.

  1. Someone on the www wrote this, not me., some of it sounds true, you be
    the judge.

    --------start of quoted post--------
    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.
    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. Here are
    some of the 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 it slippery.
    5) Keeps flies off cows.
    6) Restores and cleans chalkboards.
    7) Removes lipstick stains.
    8) Loosens stubborn zippers.
    9) Untangles jewelry 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 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 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 favorite use is: "cleans and removes love bugs from
    grills & 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 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.

    Don't know if all above is true though...

    I wouldn't try it on an electric motor or anything that sparks though,
    it's highly flammable & can flame up a ruin it., best to use silicon or
    teflon lubricants.

    An absolutely RETARDED suggestion!

    One should NEVER put petroleum distillates on a burn... EVER. You
    fucking retard!

    The best thing for burns is unflavored meat tenderizer (MSG).

    I'd be very willing to bet that you do not even know what the term

    Good job of proving to the group that you have no clue what "PLONK!"
    means.

    Ugly around here? Roy, you control NOTHING... here or anywhere else.
    What makes you think we give a fat flying **** what your version of
    "ugly" for the group is. Roy... YOU are ugly. The group knows this
    fact.

    Just so you know, 99.9999999% of your posts are trolls or
    mis-information which can be dangerous to other readers of your CRAP!
    Threatening to "get real ugly around here" is absolutely the behavior of
    a troll. You are that which you claim to hate.

    I've used it to remove labels & sticky glue from just about anything.,
    let me see, it does remove gum from clothig, tar from you car, if you're
    hands are greased up it'll loosen it and make it easier to wash off
    ....but, yeah Don some of those claims sounded outrageous to me., that's
    why I posted it }:)

    You should go out after someone that's interested in your shit, you
    queer motherfuck., maybe you'll meet your next husband here & find some
    happiness before you die.
