You are right. And it seems mostly to be sold in 1 gallon containers. Hahaha. Buy one gallon of white gas to clean a heatsink. Maybe my advise was not very practical.

Hi,

I remember buying a quart container of white camp stove fuel.

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

I haven't tried this stuff (2 part Arctic Silver ArctiClean) but it seems to get good user reviews on Amazon.

IsoPropyl alcohol has always worked for me but I use lab grade which is essentially anhydrous.

Have you tried surgical spirit? It also works well but is more agressive on plastic than isoPropyl.

Yes, that's the stuff I use and it works a treat.
