Cleaning alcohol is what i'd use.

Something like this: http://www.maplin.co.uk/module.aspx?moduleno=28994
But don't get that one, you won't need that much.

I second IPA - oldmanhouse's suggestion. Search for item 390067754553 or 380141734722 on eBay: £3.25 to 3.45 for 125 to 250ml, which is 99%+ pure.

It's what I use.

P.S. Something more 'specialist', like Akasa TIM clean will also do

nail varnish remover is a lot cheaper and works a treat
