You might try using a mixture of 1,1,1 trichloroethane w/Hexane at
70/30% respectively. Use is well ventilated area or w/fume hood.

Materials can be ordered from

    Tri-Ess Sciences
    1020 W. Chestnut
    Burbank CA 91506

They ship to all states and have good service and reasonable prices.
Ask for Kim. She understands conservators' needs.

If you're still having problems you have more than finger smudges!
