Default Thermal grease stuff...:P

The Arctic Freezer 64 pro comes pre applied with some thermal grase, but I don't want it on, so what are the correct steps in order to remove the grease

Remove as much as possible with some piece of plastic, then, clean the rest off with rubbing alcohol. Let it completly dry before use.
