Can I clean off my old thermal paste with 99% 2-propanol?

Just wondering. Also, can I clean pretty much every other component with it when needed? Isn't there a chance of 2 propanol vapor, you know, exploding?

Not a good idea, if the heatsink does not reseat properly when replacing it then your CPU may overheat, and propanol is an extremely flammable substance.
