Is this ok to remove thermal paste? - Page 2

Isopropyl alcohol is good. Don't spill or drink thou smile.gif
OR smoke while handling for that matter.

You can get higher concentrations (upto 99%) from the pharmacy... just dont try to buy several gallons at once.. you dont want them thinking you're starting a Meth lab smile.gif

And indeed coffee filters is the preferred combination, as they are porous and dont have any chemical residue in them (or at least very little).
Toilet paper has been treated with chemicals (including bleach) to dissolve fast in liquids. Which is why you should not be using TP to wipe your nose.
So are paper (kitchen) towels and handkerchiefs , but they are "extra softened" , "not irritant" and sometimes perfumed; because of their "fluffyness" they tend to leave traces.

Coffee filters are under the food stuff regulations... they are treated to very very slowly dissolve after use and none of the chemical residue are allowed to be released into your cuppa joe when pouring (near) boiling water through them.

Well it worked thanks guys, but I was in so much pain, I got paper cuts on my index and middle finger just before cleaning the chip.
