Ginda is correct about the volitility of acetone. It does attack some
plastics, though. Particularly PVC. Polypropylene and polyethylene are
pretty much immune.

What about on a plastic primary, it wouldn't break down or try to melt
I use all certified organic practices, so I'm pretty sure this is
ruled out as a cleaner, but it's good to know there is something out
there high powered enough to defeat the goo. I could always clean
something up & pass it on to someone who wasn't concerned with such
