And then, the solvent is meant to stay there?

I had bad experiences with "put magic fluid in between and the problem will be gone". :-) Depending on solvent, the solvent has no chance to evaporate away between the plastic layers. And if it could evaporate, the dirt has moved around but not away.

Also, letting solvent staying on these delicate conducting silver strips is most likely doing more damage over time. Also, depending on solvent.
