It’s a safe bet you’ve heard of and used WD-40, an oil which can be used as a cleaning product, lubricant, and anti-corrosive solution. Its name actually stands for “Water Displacement – 40th Attempt.” The creator of the product sought to concoct a formula designed to prevent corrosion, and he perfected it, as you may have guessed, on his 40th attempt.
WD-40 performs five basic functions: It cleans, displaces moisture, penetrates, lubricates, and protects. These functions can be expanded for use on a variety of items in and around your home.
