The History of WD-40

I found this site on a whim. My roommate and I were using some WD-40 to lubricate the hinges of a door when I wondered what the history of the product was. Why was it invented? How long had it been around? Well, when a librarian has questions like this there’s only one thing she can do – head straight to Google!

I discovered that the company has not only a history page (that’s where I’m sending you) but also a really cool infographic, and a page dedicated to just cool stuff about their product WD-40.

Once you’re on the history page, you can click Cool Stuff on the menu to access interesting use cases submitted by customers, legends, images, and even a look at their social media presence.

Go check it out for yourself!
