Acetone as image remover

I received a call from a lithographic printer that has been substituting
acetone for "image remover."

The printer applies acetone to plates (aluminum) with a Q-tip when it is
necessary to remove/change the plate image.

Is there a good substitute for acetone in this specific application?

Also, to increase my general printing knowledge: Is it a common
practice to modify the plate image using either, acetone or an image
remover?
