Sharing reluctantly...

This evening I sat down to check my email and there was a forward from my sister in law. It was about a product that in our household has to be hidden to have. There are a few of such items that the Mr. and I share reluctantly, some of them are Awesome orange cleaner from the Dollar store, Teflon Tape, black electrical tape, and WD 40. For all the afore mentioned items, I have mine and he has his... and sometimes mine.

I thought we hid this pretty well. I know she couldn't have known...I now hide it and make him ask, he now says "hey babe, where's your Wd 40?" See I buy 2 cans one for me and one for him, Because he hides his in the Blacksmith shop and it's never to be found again. The shop also hides wood glue, tools, and anything I need in a hurry.
See our little power struggles are over power tools like Dremmels, cordless drills and attachments and Wd 40. 2 crafty do it our-selfers in the same house, and one that's learning to bring things right back or I say "Hey, where's my can?"

So here's the email, I just thought I'd share some hints for this prized possession in our house and then at the bottom of the post, a link to 2000 more uses.

A lady got up very early one morning and went outside to pickup the
Sunday paper, she noticed someone had sprayed red paint all around the sides of
the neighbors brand new beige truck.

She went over and woke him up and gave him the bad news. He was, of
course extremely upset.
And they stood there trying to figure out what could
be done about the problem. They decided there wasn't much recourse but to wait
until Monday, since nothing was open. Just then another neighbor came out of his
house, surveyed the situation and immediately went to get hisWD-40 out and
cleaned the red paint off with it. Guess What! It cleaned up that paint without
harming the original paint on the truck! I'm impressed!!

Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for A rust
preventative solvent and de greaser 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

They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40. The
Corvair 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

Amazing. I have a feeling I'll be finding it much more useful now. But I have a similar problem to yours with tools and such.
