Is WD 40 Toxic?

Answer

Despite what some people believe, WD 40 is toxic. WD 40 is often used as a lubricant and a penetrating oil, but it is used mainly as a water displacement corrosion inhibitor. It states on the WD 40 bottles, 'If swallowed, call physician or poison control center immediately.' It should not be used near any food or machines that are used to make food or beverages. Swallowing WD 40 can be very harmful to people of all ages.
