	Any one of a number of solvents may be used to remove grease--
there was a thread on this subject earlier on Leps-L.

	I have used ethyl acetate for this purpose, successfully, for no
other reason than that I had quantities of it on hand. I totally immersed
the specimen in the solvent--which needs to be done with care to avoid
having the surface tension break the wings.
