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

I had a neighbour who had bought a new van. I got up very early one
Sunday morning and saw that some vandal had spray painted red all around
The sides of this white van. I went over and told him the bad news. He
Was very upset and was trying to work out what to do, probably nothing
Until Monday morning, since nothing was open.

Another neighbour came out and told him to get some WD-40 and clean it
Off. It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm the paint
That was on the van. I'm impressed!
WD-40 - how did someone work out it would do that?

'Water Displacement No.40' The product began from a search for 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. It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that
Spotty shower screen. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as on
Glass. It's a miracle! Then try it on your cooker top .... Kazamm! It's
Now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.
