I think our boy has been helping it out so his rubber rat will have a friend.

WD-40 is also good for getting rid of yellowjackets. When I was a kid, we had a nest of them between the wall and siding of our house. My brother shot some WD-40 into the tiny lil crack they were getting in and out from and, the ones that didn't die on the spot, flew away and never came back. And, the back porch had that pleasant WD-40 smell for months.

Odhinn MCG is right. I seem to remember something about wd-40 standing for Water Displacement 40th attempt. Works great for displacing water and a temperary quick lube on drill bits during fab work if you have no oil around. Everyone will have their own opinion about it like everything else on the web. I always have a can in the garage and use it for a few things including throwing it at the mouse that has been eluding me for 2 months now.

Convair, an aerospace contractor, first used WD-40 to protect the outer skin of the Atlas Missile from rust and corrosion. The product actually worked so well that several employees snuck some WD-40 cans out of the plant to use at home...............
I saw an episode of Modern Marvels about WD40. They had no plans to market it to the general public, until they found so much "missing."

It's just the new marketing techniques form the competitiors nowadays to bash the other guys product and make theirs look better.

WD40 works great for general purpose. However, if you are trying to loosen a rusted fastener, PB or CRC is the way to go if you prefer not to wait.

skeeter According to a buddy of mine that worked for SDG&E WD-40 was developed to displace water in electronics, it does that very well. I've used it numerous times when an engine has been swamped. I take the distributor cap off and spray the inside liberally and it clears up the misfiring.
It can also stop squeaks and makes a good gun cleaning solvent.

OK i'v heard alot of talk around the web about WD-40 not doing it's intended job. What's the deal? Is this true? Why? Also I've heard it's "only" good for drying things out. How do you use it to dry things out?
