I just had an issue like this on my AR 15. I used carb cleaner and a paper towel.

Any organic solvent should work acetone, methel-ether-ketone carb and choke cleaner, googone.... gasoline... any will work. be careful though what it does to the finish on the stock.

Chlorinated brake cleaner in a spray can. Non flammable, but you still need a good exhaust fan. Don't let it get on your stock.
