Contents Tip of the Week

Happy Wednesday everyone. Today I would like to talk to you about an unsung hero...WD40. In 1953, a fledgling company called Rocket Chemical Company and its staff of three set out to create a line of rust-prevention solvents and degreasers for use in the aerospace industry, in a small lab in San Diego, California.

It took them 40 attempts to get the water displacing formula worked out. But they must have been really good, because the original secret formula for WD-40 which stands for Water Displacement perfected on the 40th try-is still in use today. The three had no idea what magic they had created, today its uses today. So I have put together a lists that as always ...saves you money, and increases your performance without using a lot of harsh chemicals.
