Kerosene will penetrate most anything. Machine shop teacher told us years ago to clean machined metal after you have use a cutting tool (honing out cylinders on engine block) with kerosene. Kerosene "floats" the metal particles out of the pores of the metal and lets you wipe the metal clean. Gasoline pushes the particles back into the pores of the metal.
