I've found a store (Dick Blick) that probably carried 4 oz cans of Bestine, but it's 2 1/2 hours away... Or I can pay shipping, $4 for the can, $10 shipping... that's almost what I could get the big can for!

I have two of the underframes, and I've heard that Bestine rubber
been trying to think of other ways to clean them... and finally broke
down and went to Michael's yesterday to pick up some Bestine. But...
it was $17 a pint! I'm thinking this may be my only chance I'll ever
use Bestine... But I was willing to spend maybe $5, not $17. What
other methods work for cleaning Shapeways parts prior to gluing/painting?
