Meteorite Etched

replacement for Carbon Tet?

I need to use Carbon Tet as a non reactive solvent to clean my samples (iron meteorite) before I apply an acid etching solution on the sample.

Can I use DCM instead of carbon tet even though its polar or is there a better replacement?

Thank you
my main goal is to dissolve fats and oils and most important for me is not to have an active solvent that would precipitate anything onto my sample.

methylene chloride will probably work. it depends on what you are trying to solvate. you might also try trichloro ethane, it boils at a higher temperature.
