    Never tried that but I use goo gone. If your using it to remove reidue from a cartridge label, you have to be extremely careful and not rub hard. If you rub to hard you will remove the color. Also, don't get it aroound the edges of the label as it will seep under the label and leave an ugly blemish.

    Lighter fluid works better.

    I'm fairly certain turpentine has elements in it that can dry/dull/strip the heat molded plastic of a cartridge shell.
