    A dog is not almost human , I know of no greater insult to a canine than to describe it as such.

    Guess what is making the rounds again :

    DID YOU KNOW?
    What IS The Main Ingredient of WD-40?

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

    No Cheating.....

    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 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 finally successful for a formulation, with their fortieth attempt, 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 on glass. It's a miracle! Then try it on your stovetop. It's now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.

    WD-40 Uses:
    1. Protects silver from tarnishing.
    2. Removes road tar and grime from cars.
    3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.
    4. Gives floor that 'just-waxed' sheen without making them slippery.
    5. Keeps the flies off of Cows, Horses, and other Farm Critters, as well. (Ya gotta love this one!!!)
    6. Restores and cleans chalkboards.
    7. Removes lipstick stains.
    8. Loosens stubborn zippers.
    9. Untangles jewelry chains.
    10. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks.

    P.S. As for that Basic, Main Ingredient.......
    Well.... it's FISH OIL.... Who would have guessed ? ? ?
    Fish Oil : nah .....


    Formulation

    WD-40's formula is a trade secret. The product is not patented, to avoid completely disclosing its ingredients.[3][6] WD-40's main ingredients, according to U.S. Material Safety Data Sheet information, are:
    51% Stoddard solvent
    25% liquefied petroleum gas (presumably as a propellant; carbon dioxide is now used instead to reduce WD-40's considerable flammability)
    15+% mineral oil (light lubricating oil)
    10-% inert ingredients

    The German version of the mandatory EU safety sheet lists the following safety-relevant ingredients:
    60–80% heavy naphtha (petroleum product), hydrogen treated
    1–5% carbon dioxide

    It further lists flammability and effects to the human skin when repeatedly exposed to WD-40 as risks when using WD-40. Nitrile rubber gloves and safety glasses should be used. Water is unsuitable for extinguishing burning WD-40.
