some of those might come in handy!

WD-40 is also good for getting the residual glue off jars and things after peeling the labels off.

Hmmmm, that would be WD-40 which is mostly naphtha (a petroleum product, probably carcinogenic amongst may other things), classed as harmful on the label and the manufacturers specifically say "avoid contact with skin".

Great for many things but I won't be rubbing it on my skin.
