WD 40

WD-40 – A must read and share

Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient of WD-40 is? Don’t cheat.

With a hat-tip to the messenger for this one – we can accept no liability for the outcome of practical use of the suggestions here.


Who knew? I had a neighbour who bought a new car. I got up very early one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides of his car (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 neighbour 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 on the car. I’m impressed!

WD-40 who knew? ‘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… 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! Then try it on your stove top … Voila! It’s now shinier than it’s ever been.

You’ll be amazed.

WD-40 uses:

1. Protects silver from tarnishing.

2. Removes road tar and grime from cars.

3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.

4. Gives floors that ‘just-waxed’ sheen without making them slippery.

18. It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor! Use WD-40 for that nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn’t seem to harm the finish and you won’t have to scrub nearly as hard to get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.

19. Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly!

Use WD-40!

37. Florida’s favourite use is: ‘cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers.’

38. The favourite use in the state of New York, WD-40 protects the Statue of Liberty from the elements.

39. WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a little on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time. Also, it’s a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just that purpose. Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.

40. Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.

41. WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls… Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.

42. Also, if you’ve discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick spots with WD-40 and rewash. Presto! The lipstick is gone!

43. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start.

P.S. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY – Friday 16th July 2021

One of the principal causes of tumours is STRESS.

In the UK police service, the average life-span of a retired constable is just 8 years. Here are the averages – joins at 18 yrs, serves 30 years, dies at 56 years. Joins at 25 yrs, serves 25 years – dies at 58 years.

Select your company well‘ – As harsh as it may sound, mixing with highly stressed people will make YOU feel stressed.

On the other hand, mixing with CALM people – even for the briefest period – will leave you feeling calm..

Another strong cause of tumours is SUGAR – apparently all cancers feed on it.

So, avoid STRESS, avoid SUGAR, look after your own immune system and mix with people who are not ruled by FEAR, and you can enjoy PEACE.

A Recipe for home-made Quinine

Hydroxychloroquine, sold (by Big Pharma) under the brand name Plaquenil among others, is a medication used to prevent and treat malaria in areas where malaria remains sensitive to chloroquine. Other uses include treatment of rheumatoid arthritislupus, and porphyria. It is taken by mouth, often in the form of hydroxychloroquine sulphate.[2]

 Hydroxychloroquine is said to have been studied to prevent and treat coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19), but we are being told that all clinical trials of that formulation conducted during 2020 found it is ‘ineffective and may cause dangerous side effects‘. It proved good enough, however, to be administered to our Prime Minister earlier this year, when he was in a pickle [3][4][5][6]

Quinine alone, on the other hand is a totally natural medication, derived from the bark of the cinchona tree, which is native to the Andean forests of western South America. It has been historically ‘sought after’ for its medicinal value, and was probably brought to Europe by the Spanish, at a time when they were being unkind to the local population there. It proved to be an effective treatment against malaria, which made it of great economic and political importance.

Whenever you feel a chest cold coming on or just feel grotty, make your own Quinine. It is easily made, out of the peelings of grapefruits and lemons …but, especially grapefruits.

Here is the recipe – you can take this concoction during the day…or you can make a ‘tea’ out of it and drink it all day.

To make your very own Quinine:

You will need the rind of 2-3 grapefruits or lemons

Taking the peel only, cover it with water to about 3 inches above the peels. Put a glass lid on your pot if you have one  – (a metal one is OK if you don’t) – and let it simmer for about 2 hours.

Do not take the lid off the pot until it cools completely, as this would allow some Quinine essence to escape in the steam.

You can sweeten the Quinine ‘tea’ with honey or sugar since it does taste bitter. Take 1 tablespoon every couple of hours to bring up phlegm from your lungs. Discontinue this just as soon as you get better.

This should allay your fears about this ‘virus’ because you now have the defence against that – and many other things. If you can also take zinc in tablet form (available from any herbal chemist) with this recipe, the zinc will propel the Quinine into your cells for a much faster healing process.

Or you can just accept the ‘unproven‘ vaccination, which has just arrived in the nick of time, and continue to wear those’ ineffective‘ masks for the next four years, since the Chancellor’s forecast is that it will take until 2125 to get our national budget back into any sort of decent shape.

Common Sense in a crisis

I am ‘getting on a bit’ but. after suffering a nasty fall indoors at around 2am last Tuesday, when I did fortunately manage to stand up again, I was able to unlock my front door, knowing that the ambulance crew were on their way.

Normally, even during the day, I do tend also to leave the ‘safety chain’ across the door, and this prompted my question to the paramedics –

How do you guys manage if you come to a property where the door is unlocked, but the safety chain has been left on? Do you carry any bolt cutters in the ambulances?”

No”, came the answer, “we call the fire brigade!”

Which seems a bit daft really, with someone inside in need of immediate life-saving medical attention. It must surely be cheaper to issue cutters to every ambulance rather than to pay for a fire crew to attend – and not even a fire occurring.

Inevitably, my mind turned to 15th April 1989, and that dreadful public order debacle at the Hillsborough stadium. There were finally 96 persons dead and 766 were injured, all of which might have been avoided, if only the groundstaff equipment had included a set of stout bolt-cutting equipment to open up the front ‘gates’ to those terraced areas, allowing supporters to spill out safely onto the pitch.

I don’t recall that being raised as an issue during the public enquiry.

(The last time I mentioned this on social media I got a bit of abuse from one family who had been bereaved at Hillsborough, which was unfortunate, because my point was not against their relatives’ situation, but supportive of them and how those poor people could have been saved.)
