Inhaling water vapor is not only NOT lethal, it is quite healthful. Ever used a
humidifier to make a room more comfortable?
Inhaling wd-40 vapor, even in relatively small amounts can kill you.
You are an idiot.
Tell me how I can kill myself inhaling vapors and no liquid phase mist!
I doubt it's much easier than jumping into the deep end of a swimming pool
and drowning myself!

What exactly about my headers has you in such a tizzy, goofball?
WD40 is mostly poison. You have yet to present anything to prove that assertion
C'mon Asshole, answer the question that proves you are an idiot How much WD40
can you safely drink? You CAN'T Answer that question without admitting that you
are wrong and a fool.
No, it is not toxic in the usual chemical sense. It causes aspiration
pneumonia if inhaled as a liquid into the lungs. Because of its low
viscosity and surface tension, it will likely be accidentally inhaled if
swallowed. THIS aspiration hazard is why petroleum distillates are always
labeled "harmful or fatal if swallowed", NOT due to toxicity.
By your logic, water is "poison", because it can also kill you, if
These are the facts. You apparently can't follow this. Moreover, you are
full of baseless insults and anonymous spew. All of this indicates a
debased, cowardly intellect, which deserves no further response.
Anyway, I thought it was darned interesting. I don't know why so many
people are getting upset about his claim that it is not intestinally toxic -
believe it, or don't, who gives a shit? I don't think anyone's going to
drink a cup because they read it wasn't toxic on usenet. Get a life,
Been around machinists for many years. They (generally) don't read the
labels. WD-40 is popular as a cutting lubricant when doing light cuts,
especially when fly cutting, (large circular cutters) aluminum.
The heat combined with the aluminum dust and WD-40 chemical fog makes
for a nice mixture of respiratory goodies. Like so many little short
cuts in the work place the effects don't show up until years later.
Usually in retirement when being a tad immobilized can cause some
retrospective second guessing.
No I can't. The company keeps the actual ingredients a trade secret, but they
post a FAQ that lists a few things commonly guessed that are NOT in WD40,
including silicone and kerosene. I gave a link to the site.
Ahh, I was confused- apparently kerosene is also a good cutting fluid.
Now if the WD-40 people used some nice grade machine oil instead of
whatever the stuff is they put in there, I might actually use it.
This is Turtle.
There is one problem with it. It will vaporize in 60 to 90 days and you have to
reapply it to protect metal. Also you can't use it
in electric motor for it will vaporize and leave the bearing dry in atleast 90 days.
One you start using it, You have to keep on
using it to protect the metal.
Now it is some good stuff but it does have it's draw backs.

I used to service and repair office machines and industrial
equipment. WD 40 is very good for temporary repairs such as loosening
stuck parts. That's not quite the same as lubricating the same parts
as whatever lubricating properties WD 40 may seem to exhibit it dries
off quite quickly to leave behind bare metal surfaces. The equipment
then gets stuck again or create wear marks. In any case bearings and
gears in modern electronic equipment such as computer printers and
printer calculator machines are meant to run dry. Applying WD 40 or
even light machine oil creates more problems than they are worth.
I can't say much of the long list of unorthodox uses found for WD 40.
But one very useful application is to remove hardened and
"permanently" stuck labels. Spray some on a old gummed label and wait
a few minutes. The label then peels off easily like a wet water slide
