Translation Please What Is "white spirit should be ok" WHITE SPIRIT????

Plastics, generally, do not disolve in alcohol, (shellac, made from insect bodies does, and the fine furniture finish of alcohol, linseed oil, and shellac is known as a "French Finish" and used on antique furniture.

Plastics are advers to the petroleum family (also a carbon compound) however, plastic death is knealed with substances such as paint-thinner, acetone, tholemyne, and gasoline.

On the side of water ( one of the grandest of all solvents)combined with DishWashingSoap...it probably should be anyone's first choice. (The antique, silk, Chinese, rug...came out beautiful for $1.25 and four days of drying....unfortunately, the rats had eaten holes where the cat-crap had sat.)
