WD-40 wheel wells to keep dirt from sticking?

Anyone ever done this?

I saw something about it the other day, if you spray WD-40 in your wheel wells and part of under carriage it will keep the mud from sticking...

Just wondering peoples thoughts about this.

I'm sure it works but I'd rather use baby oil. I have read somewhere that it works well.

STP Son of a Gun. The yellow bottle with Richard Petty on it. It is just like Armor All, even smells the same.
