    In days gone by used to be able to get Tipex Thinners in a similar little plastic bottle, this was 1:1:1 Trichloroethane ... now no longer a product we are supposed to use.

    I notice that current bottles of Tipex are now called Tipex Rapid ... it still contains solvent (not water-based)
    Anybody know what the solvent is ?

    Have several bottles thickening and need to thin up.

    Was going to try Acetone - but thought I'd check first in case anyone knows.
    Iso-Propyl certainly does not work
