No I use naphtha which is wax and crime remover. I wrote " Nail polisher remover". You could use nail polish remover as it is acetone which evaporates water, but not that great for wax and crime. previous posting snydski wrote "..... I like to hit everything with a little denatured alcohol first, get rid of moisture ...." My point there was acetone is a lot cheaper than nail polish remover and also naphtha is basically what is in the fancy cans of prep-sol, prewipe or whatever it is called.
