    I suppose if you use WD-40 you could follow up with TSP (Tri-Sodium Phosphate) it would remove any oil and leave no residue when followed by a clear rinse.
    TSP is often used to prep a surface for painting because of these very characteristics - great stuff!
    TSP not available in some areas due to local laws
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    Um are you sure about this? From my point of view wd-40 helps remove squeeks and rust. Or not remove rust but should I say help the item deal with rust. Its a rust intimitor.

    In my experience WD-40 is garbage, if it removes TIM easily it will be the first real use I have ever found for it.

    Remember years ago that stuff in the generic silver can - Miracle Mist. That stuff rocked, free a rusted bolt like nobody's business.

    Anybody know where I can get some of that??

    You can use regular STC. But keep in mind that you may need to reapply it once in every 6 months, and do your best not to get the stuff on your skin.
