MattTheMayor The alcohol contents may have actually dropped a small (maybe it"s 90% now due to evaporation), but it must still occupational as a cleaning solvent.


Nail polishing remover generally isn"t isopropyl, it"s acetone. DO NOT use ACETONE ON computer PARTS. The eats a lot of plastics, especially acrylics.
