WD 40 has more uses than duct tape!!!
This page has absolutely nothing to do with stamps and cards but is interesting and helpful and I had to add it.
Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient is? I found out it got its name from "Water Displacement #40". The product began for a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missle parts. It was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. The 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 missle parts. Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in the product that would hurt you... When you try it on the following you will be amazed.
