    I got an email today about the wonders of WD-40 (Water Displacement formular number 40 apparently).
    It says WD-40 can do lots of lubricating mechanical things and stain removal, ok I'll go for that but these two.....


    36) Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees
    to relieve arthritis pain.
    40) Ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and
    stops the itch.

    and... It is good for oven burns or any other type of burn. It takes the burned feeling away and heals with NO scarring.
    Remember, the basic ingredient is FISH OIL.

    Is this true?

    According to Wiki, a source which never lies, it's basic ingredient is White Spirit in the US and Naphtha (similar to paraffin, I believe) in the EU, not fish oil.

    I think it also causes burning if too much of it comes in contact with your skin. However, I have not tried this...

    Well, as it displaces water I'm sure that it would help to get rid of the sweat from under your armpits. However - be careful! Wiki warns you that you shouldn't use it to wither clean eletrical circitry (as it leaves a sticky residue), and nor should you use it to clean locks. Inseat, to clean locks one should use isopropyl alcohol then allow the lock to dry thoroughly and then lubricated with dry graphite powder.

    Consider yourself warned!
