Just butting in here, you recommend acetone for cleaning Frosted Ultra Detail? Any precautions? And will the acetone help remove residual wax?

Quoted from one of my model's description :
" - With Frosted Detail/Ultra Detail only : I recommend to wash the model, to remove any remaining wax. Approx. 3 minutes in acetone (or approx. 30 minutes in denaturated alcohol), rub gently with a toothbrush, rinse with water. Follow the handling precautions of these products !"
I personally prefer acetone, it's more efficient.

Thank you! Is there any concern leaving the model in the acetone for longer durations than 3 minutes? Just trying to get a read on how stable the material really is; don't want to stumble into an expensive mistake.
