    In addition to the ability to remove nail polish -

    "Acetone is a good solvent that is a component of some paints and varnishes, as well as for most plastics and synthetic fibres. It is ideal for thinning fiberglass resin, cleaning fiberglass tools and dissolving two-part epoxies and superglue before hardening. A heavy-duty degreaser, it is useful in the preparation of metal prior to painting; it also thins polyester resins, vinyl and adhesives.

    Acetone can also dissolve many plastics, including those used in Nalgene bottles made of polystyrene, polycarbonate and some types of polypropylene."

    LOL

    anyways i went to walmart last night cuz we were out of toilet paper, and i stopped by the auto care section and found this


    someone had mentioned lucas, and it says injector cleaner on it, plus is oily, directions said to dump whole bottle in gas tank before or after refueling, sounds exactly like my friend had told me about...mystery solved? haha

    ps of course there were plenty of other ones(BRANDS) which did the same thing or similar

    Eh, its is more part of the profession. I really enjoyed the theories in chemistry but actually doing any is an unsavory chore.
