WD-40 for plumbers

The washing machine drain pipe p-trap got clogged. The p-trap got sawed off, then popped off of one end. But the other end is two threaded peices that won't budge. Is there a WD-40--like lube for plumbbing to work away whatever might be holding those threads together?

Is this galvanized drain pipe?
There shouldn't be anything holding the threads except rust, corrosion or pipe dope.
Try WD-40 or another solvent and larger pipe wrenches.
