    Happy Holidays Chaplin37!
    I’m assuming you’re referring to watches. Yes many people use Coleman Lantern Fuel as an alternative. Just remember that it’s extremely flammable so it can be dangerous to use so please take whatever precautions necessary to insure safety if you go this route. I’ve used it many times and find it suitable as a rinse but it does seem to leave a small residue which can affect the ability of watch oils to stay in place on jewels. Pegging the jewels with peg wood will remove the residue and seems to take care of the problem.
    Enjoy Chaplin!!!
