We use Acetone to clean a lot of the metal, plastic, and glassware objects in
the lab I work in. (Don't know if it matters, but we do MEMS research) I was
wondering why we use Acetone, and how it works to clean the objects. Also,
I've seen people clean with Acetone, Methanol, and then Deionized water. Why
can't we just use deionized water?
