Accidentally sprinkled wd40 on one of my drum heads.

Will it be fine? I wiped it off immediately though. Hopefully it's not a penetrant (if that's a word).

Was it coated heads? If it didn't wipe anything away immediately, its probably gonna be fine. If uncoated head, should be just fine. Personally, I would make sure its all of, by gently wiping with damp cloth. (dampened with water ;) and a lil soap, then wipe again w just water n cloth, then dry cloth.).

play it for a while. if it sounds bad or effects the head change it. Don't think about it too much, just remember if the head does something weird, that is why. I think the worst will be the smell for a few days, as long as it didn't get underneath into the drum. WD40 is just a water displacement. It's main use is for cleaning (not lube like everyone thinks and uses it for). You're going to be just fine.

You may have to take the head to the emergency room. Couple quick questions: is the head coughing up blood? Is it having any trouble breathing? What is it's temperature and resting heart rate?
