Most people have at least one can of WD-40 where they live. A lot of us have several cans of this amazing spray technology at our disposal. Why? Because WD-40 is an amazing product. It's almost as incredible in its mystic powers as duct tape. WD-40 was developed for use in the defense industry, not a shock huh?
Through the years intelligent people have come to figure out and create even more amazing uses for it. The "W D" in WD-40 stands for water displacement. The 40 stands for "40th formula" I guess they tried 39 others that didn't work. What is the secret ingredient that gives this magic elixir such incredible powers? Fish Oil, that's right fish oil is what does the trick. How it does it I don't know.
What I do know is WD- 40 works on just about anything. Want proof? Try spraying a little WD-40 on your spotty shower door, pretty amazing results await those who dare to try.
