This is beyond laughable and but instead absurd for cleaning optical media , WD 40 is petroleum distillate solvents and light oil

Many, if not all, will laugh, however, I have had good success with WD40 and DVD's / Blu Rays .. and, it's helped with my vinyl for years ..
As mentioned above and maybe with clean distilled water in a diluted solution on a dampened cloth for something nasty where the water alone or dry microfibre wont work Dawn or Joy Dishwashing liquid should be more than you need it works for stubbornly dirty LCD and plasma display panels on a dampened cloth in a highly diluted solution and for outside or inside window washing with squeegee also ,some professional janitor services use those for that and reccomend it if asked .
I clean the Redox rentals before I use them if needed usually only dry microfibre , only one was unplayable in years , it had a decent scratch in it and an email or something at the website got me a credit code.
I prefer Vudu HDX or a 4K SDR/HDR digital stream or download if the title is good enough to justify the cost .
I play my media drives with Android Kody in the Sony 4K HDR TV in here and otherwise serve them around the home .
At the most an owed optical media title will play once here before a digital redemption or copy to spinning metal .
WD40 is nothing I would want near my media or laser readers or screens it can even depreciate metal paint finishes .
I worked with it on the job for years and know what it can do and it can be volatile in a vapor state as well ,we used to make WD 40 vapor bombs to horse around with
