I think you're referring to benzine (*not* benzene) or petroleum
ether (which isn't an ether), sometimes also called naphtha or
mineral spirits (less exact names). Yes, that should work.
If you can't obtain it easily, perhaps contact cement thinner might
do the job. It appears to be a mixture of MEK, toluol and petroleum
