    Depends. For many solvents yes, but very high grade IPA (99.99%) can be purchased from Amazon or similar, and is not expensive. It will do a similar job to methanol.

    The best solvents for degreasing surfaces are DCM or chloroform, but you will probably struggle to find either one. Next to those, white spirit might be your best option, provided it is of a high...

    Re: getting glass CLEAN, how do you do it?

    It could also be because the solvents you are using are not of a high purity, and contain other crap which gets left behind as residues when the bulk solvent evaporates.
