I got this info here, but don't know how long it will stay active, so I'm going to copy the info:
The Incredible nearly Edible WD-40 *

I had a neighbor who had bought a new pickup. I got up very early one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides of this beige truck for some unknown reason. I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news.

He was very upset and was trying to figure out what to do. Probably nothing until Monday morning, since nothing was open. Another neighbor came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on the truck.

I'm impressed! WD-40 who knew? Water Displacement number 40. The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser 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" compound. 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 you. In fact its basic ingredient is fish oil.

It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door whether it is plastic or glass. It's a miracle! Then try it on your stove top. Voila! It's now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.

Just do not try to spray paint with ANY WD-40 residue on surface. Will cause "fisheye" blemishes.
