My cleaner was set up for water. Got it from ALDI for about $20, 8 years ago and it hasn't done any harm. I only use it as a cleaning solvent, so when I pull my parts out I shoot it all with brake and electric motor cleaner, paint thinner, acetone or use alcohol to get the WD off. I almost get hives when I think water+steel, but I thought I'd throw out how I clean the crap off.
