This Old Annville House – The Wonders of WD40

Just about everyone has a can of WD40 lying around the house. This ubiquitous household staple originally came into being back in 1953, when the Rocket Chemical Company of San Diego, CA, was commissioned to formulate a rust inhibitor to coat skins of defense missiles. After 40 attempts, they succeeded in designing the water displacement formulation they were seeking – hence “WD40.”   Since then it has triumphed over many a squeaky door and stuck lock. But WD40 has many other wonderful uses.   As winter turns to spring, many of us start thinking about exterior home repairs, specifically roof repairs.  Did you know that WD40 more humanely removes roofing tar off hands and tools than lacquer thinner or paint thinner? I also use it to coat the bottom of my lawn mower to keep the grass from sticking. Just a couple more reasons to keep that little yellow and blue can on the shelf.
