[NAFEX] elderberries and the dreaded green goo

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
the plastic?

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
things.
