In 1894 George W. Cole, a resident of New Jersey, USA, compounds a mixture to accomplish three things in connection with the care and maintenance of a bicycle. These are: a lubricant, a rust preventative and a cleaner. The formula results in the famous 3-IN-ONE® Oil that accomplishes three separate things with one application.
3-IN-ONE® has been solving problems and making people smile since that date. That’s why the WD-40 Company officially acquired the 3-IN-ONE Oil business in 1995 and has been innovating ever since to produce the best product with the best delivery systems around.
In 1999, WD-40 added the telescoping spout to get at those hard-to-reach places. In 2003, they added a Professional line of high-performance specialty products. And in 2007, they added Garage Door Lube to the family.
