Surely, They'll enjoy also !
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 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'm impressed! WD-40
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.
