top of.

Owing to it's common availability where I am, I use Double-D Eucalyptus Oil for that sort of cleaning task.
It can be diluted with water as it's fairly strong. Once I used it full-strength on a tissue to clean the
price label goo off CD jewel cases and it fogged the clear plastic a tiny bit, but after dilution it was fine.
