Gasoline, Brake cleaner, carb cleaner. I used it all.

Biggest tip is to get a small stiff piece of wire (or a pipe cleaner if you have it) and agitate the space in between the walls. I have even seen folks attach the wire to a drill and work it around to clean it.

The key is to do whatever it takes and use whatever to clean it.
