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?
Don’t lie and don’t cheat.

WD-40.  Who knew; I  had a neighbor 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 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 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.
