How would you remove the defogger from the bridges if you feel that the gaps were not filled adequately during unlocking?

I use the edge of a credit card (or other plastic card, like drivers license or plastic school ID) and scrape off as much as I can, then use Acetone (nail polish remover) to dissolve the rest.

As a safety precaution, I use isopropyl alcohol to "clean" the Acetone off, because the nail polish remover I have has "additives" to make nails stronger (probably Keratin and Aloe Vera). I don't want any additive film over my chips. =)

I use denatured alcohol. It's a lot more expensive but really works well in removing any conductive paint.

I use Nail Polish Remover too, it works fast and very efective, leave no Marks at all...

Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol works as well, but not as good as the polish remover (which I'm a bit leery of using, but anyways...)

Either should work....alcohol just takes longer...
