If I want to remove the stock thermal paste from my CPU and CPU cooler, and then apply the new one, how should I do it?

Can I just use tissue paper to rub off the old thermal paste?

Or is there anything else that I should do?

Use isopropyl alcohol - not rubbing alcohol - and a iece of a coffee filter. Tissue is not durable enough and rags may leave lint.
