You want to be able to clean the facet easily to inspect the surface you are working on. WD-40 is thin and wipes off easily with paper towel dampened with alcohol. Both produce fumes, the alcohol being worse than the WD-40. You could avoid both by using Gearloose Pandemonium Universal Base Diastiks, which can be used with water as a lubricant. (I am still using up my old stock of oil-based Diastiks.)
