Wash with dishwashing liquid, rinse, dry, and then dip quickly in clean acetone.  It is a solvent for just about everything.

I put lures in a plastic bowl and hose down with wd40. Let sit a few days and take a tooth brush to them. Then I run hot water in the sink with dawn dish soap and let them soak and take a toothbrush to them. They come out nice and clean. Sand and scuff and shoot paint.

Removes dirt, rust, any contaminates. The wd40 will remove rust stains from the bait that the hooks leave on them.

Nail polish remover has scents and additives, best to buy acetone from the paint department.

Yep, I bought some nail polish remover in a supermarket once, only to find out later that it had almond oil in it. That would have caused no end of problems if I hadn't noticed before I used it.

I lightly sand the old lure to erase any imperfections and give the surface a little “tooth” to promote paint adhesion , then squirt a little dish soap on it and give it a quick wash.  Dry with a clean cloth and ready to paint.  Don’t see the need for solvents.
