Is there any alternate ways of removing thermal compound without using alchohol wipes?

Isopropyl alcohol (75-90%) and a lint-free material, such as coffee filters. But that's essentially just a separation of what the wipes are. I'm sure there are others, just throwing it in since people often have the stuff lying around.

Really a microfiber cloth or coffee filter is usually sufficient if you "scrub" really well. Distilled water works, too, just enough to dampen the cloth.
