Difficulty removing spark plugs - use penetrant?

I am trying to replace the plugs on my W210 and after following the great DIYs here, I can get the plug boots off.

However, the plugs are not easily coming out. I've turned them about 5-10 degrees ccw but they feel as tight as ever. I keep checking my wrench to be sure I am turning them ccw!!!

Do people use a squirt of penetrant on these typically to help them along?
