When every I'm cleaning of thermal goop, I use isopropyl alcohol. The 99.9% stuff. You can get it at any drug store for really cheap. I use that with some paper towel to get off the majority of the goop, then go it with the q-tips to finish off the job.

It's fine, I use 80% because its all I have and it cleans great. I've used the stuff at least 20 times and 6 times on my CPU, nothing happens.
