Thanks to all those who responded to our question about WD-40. The winner is Michael B.
Michael will receive a Smart Straw can, a Big Blast can, and a No-Mess Pen — all compliments of WD-40. We will be providing a review of the new Smart Straw on a future episode. Maybe Michael will also give us his feedback.
Oh, and I almost forgot. What does WD-40 stand for? From the WD-40 site…
“WD-40 literally stands for Water Displacement, 40th attempt. That’s the name straight out of the lab book used by the chemist who developed WD-40 back in 1953. The chemist, Norm Larsen, was attempting to concoct a formula to prevent corrosion-a task which is done by displacing water. Norm’s persistence paid off when he perfected the formula on his 40th try. “
