 I always use IPA with this stuff, as I did with my VAXstation 4000/90 
which suffered from this very problem many years ago.  I tend to use 3M 
replacement feet then, some of which I've had for 20+ years now with no 
sign of deterioration so far, longer than the original DEC feet survived.  
I'd have to look up the P/N though as I don't have it handy.
