Check out the guide at click here

Use something like Isopropyle Alcohol available from some chemists (if you're nice they may decant a small quantity for you).

You only need a very small amount. I get around 15 to 20 applications from a 2.5g tube.

There are a number of sellers of isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol) on eBay.
