This is what I use. Comes from the local hardware store and works pretty good.

Acetone and automatic transmission fluid 50/50 mix on the spoke nipples. It's like magic.

Got the hubs cleaned up, came out pretty nice. Also soaked the wheels and fenders in OA. First time using it so I checked it like every hour. Probably could have went longer but it was getting dark and I didn't want to leave it overnight. Didn't want them to come out too clean anyway.

Those braces came out nice. What did you use to straighten them?
Definitely a vice. Had to take them off, put them in a vice with an old skinny front axle in the brace's groove. Tweaking them with pliers, a hammer and a lot of patience. Put them on the wire wheel and cleaned them afterwards with wd40.
