It will leave a residue, which isn't good. A bottle of rubbing alcohol will cost you 98cents so being cheap is no reason to avoid going the tried and true method. Isopropyl alcohol evaporates completely so there is no residue.

Very nice. A commonly suggested material for the wiping is coffee filters; as they do not leave lint, are super cheep and are readily available.

I'm sorry there are many brands of nail polish remover that only use ethyl acetate and/or acetone. If there are any other ingredients there may be a slight film left on the part but can most likely be removed under running water. /footinmouth
