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.
