Inventor of WD-40 Passed Away
John Barry Died today 1924-2009
He invented WD-40. WD stands for Water Displacement. The 40 was because it took 40 attempts to find a formula that worked.
My grandfather used to joke that WD-40 would cure the common cold! He used it for everything.
You just don't hear of inventors coming up with stuff like WD-40 every day.
Just a point of interest for those of us that fight rust everyday!
RIP John Barry
