Acetone (like old school nail polish remover). Acetone also mixes with water, so that any traces of it can be removed completely once you're done using it to get the oil off by just rinsing or washing quickly. Acetone won't harm metal, but if there are any plastic polishes/coatings on the bit, I might not use it since it would damage or remove those too.

I would drag it in the dirt then wash the dirt off and use it. Your horse won't care much and it won't last long in his mouth.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill
