[DML] WD -40

Maybe some of you have seen this, but I thought it was interesting, and has  
application to our cars:
(from the  internet) 
Wonderful WD 40:

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 
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 de greaser 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 
Corsair 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... Viola! It's now shinier than  it's ever been. You'll be
