Overhaul bottom bracket
#1
For the tutorial of overhauling the bottom bracket, there is a mention of dropping the bearings in a container with solvent for cleaning. Which solvent works?

#2
Assuming it has separate ball bearings?
Then anything that will remove grease.
Such as WD40, white spirit, petrol, paraffin, Gunk or just wipe each one with a rag.
Basically you are just cleaning off the old grease and any dirt.
On re-assembly use new grease to keep out moisture and to act as a lubricant.
