I usually try soaking it for 48 hours (or more) in Simple Green first (slower, but non-toxic) - http://www.simplegreen.com/

- Simple green will dissolve superglue and greenstuff but leave metal and styrene plastic alone.

 

If that doesn't work I use Castrol Super Clean/Degreaser (purple bottle). Soak overnight. Use rubber gloves.

I gave any minis that need stripping a bath of Pine Sol for about 48 to 72 hours works great. I have ths works better on metal rather than resin/plastic, but it does the job just the same. This would be similar the Simple Green already suggested, I just gennerally have PineSol on hand.

I usually start with Simple Green. I've seen it at Walmart in the automotive department. If that doesn't get all of it on the first soak and I'm not in a hurry, it goes back in the Simple Green. If I'm in a hurry, I get out the Winsor & Newton Brush Cleaner & Preserver to finish up the harder parts, spotting it on as needed. It is very effective at dissolving Reaper paints and even spray primer stuck in the cracks.
