RE: WD-40

Title: RE: WD-40

>>This is seriously NASTY stuff! Use it to lube your squeeky door hinges<<

I would concur that wd40 shouldn't be used to clean electronics, especially where anything more delicate than steel is likely to be exposed to the fluid, but it should also be noted that wd40 is NOT a lubricant either. it's a solvent. after a mechanical joint has been freed up with wd40 & elbow grease, it should be oiled properly.

I once used it to remove magic-marker ink from a crystal watch-glass- it's good for that sort of thing, & I could see why folks might assume it could be useful for contact-cleaning.
