MEK, Methyl Ethyl Ketone is another good one. similar to Acetone. Don't spill any of this stuff on any painted surfaces as it doubles as a Paint Remover.

METHYL ETHYL KETONE (M.E.K.) is a slower evaporating solvent similar to acetone. Stinks like heck so do it outside. Works as well.

Thanks to all for the helpful tips on cleaning. Hopefully I will not get another like the Schaefer bottle.
One thing for sure, others collectors who may have similar bottles will know what to use.

Just try all your solvents - one at a time until you find one.
And if you find the "Universal Solvent", please let me know what you keep it in.
