WD 40 Tips
I had a neighbor who had bought a new pickup. I got up very early one
morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides of
this beige truck. 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
and did not harm the paint job that was on his truck.
Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you. When you read the "shower door" part, try it. It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass. It's a miracle!

I have used WD40 for years. Its an amazing product. for one reason or another I have used it for about everything on the above list. It does really take the sting out of bug bites.
My kids use it on skeeter bites in the summer to take the itch away. It also helps back ticks out.
Also it is against the law to fish with in many states.
For the guys it will clean tires and give them the new look again.
