Ok, ok, the bottle of “rubbing alcohol” I bought here in the U.S. is labeled “Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol.” It may also be know as “denatured” or “medicinal” alcohol (but I really don’t know the difference, off-hand). As I understand it, “denatured” means it has been made unfit for human consumption (poisoned). That may have come from “Prohibition,” the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which in 1920 banned the importing, exporting, transporting, selling, and manufacturing of intoxicating liquor. During prohibition, sales of “medicinal” alcohol increased 400%. I understand that Radio Shack carries isopropyl alcohol. I found that “All Purpose Degreaser & Wash” manufactured by Philips ECG worked somewhat better for cleaning thermal grease off a Socket A Athlon than “Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol.” The Degreaser & Wash I have is rather old and comes in a spray can. The can also says “ultra-Pure HCFC-Based Solvent” on it. It goes on to say “NO CFCs or 1,1,1-Trichloroethane.” Radio Shack may have something like that also. I’ll give 409 a try the next time. Larry

You may try with WD40 if you have it. I've tried and it works.
