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 his 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 was 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.'
