Response to Perhaps a test is called for...
I have used the 'oil in Ronsonol' for years and have had good luck with it. The Ronsonol label says only that it contains 'naphtha' and it is excellent for removing labels, tar,grease & oil stains. I'll try the 'clean glass dish' test to see if a film is left. I use the mixture on Timex mechanicals if they are not running. I remove the case back, drop a LITTLE mix on the back pivot points and let it set for a while. Many times the movement starts running on its own, other times it starts with a 'nudge' on the balance wheel. If there are not other issues it works about 90%.
