Yes, amazing stuff.I remember a number of years ago they asked folk to let them know of the unusual uses WD40 had been put to and it seemed that everybody reached for it for anything and everything.Not sure about using for relieving pain though.

I'm confused as to how it can "make a child's slide more slippery" but " Shine a floor WITHOUT making it slippery". Not sure I'd rush to try that one smile

This was mentioned on a Tv programme during the scientific process of making this wd 40, 39 processes were experimented on and finally the inventor succeded on the 40th and thats how it came to be called wd 40. Water Displacement.
