Careful, some bearings come with a polymer cage and naptha will destroy them. Ask me how I know.... :doh:
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

I use electronic contact cleaner, which available at most hardware stores. it's a little on the expensive side, but it's a great solvent. It is safe for most plastics and dries without leaving residue. In short, it is the perfect solution to clean bearings. Careful though, as it will still attack some paint finishes(as most solvents will).
