If it says to use "Paint Thinner" I would stick to that.

"Paint Thinner" from the hardware store is almost always "Low Odor Mineral Spirits":

Methanol ("Methyl Hydrate") is not generally on the list of Paint Thinner ingredients.

"Varsol" is a brand name that is predominantly composed of Mineral Spirits.

(Years ago in my career we used a particularly effective solvent blend we called "Ink Remover." It consisted of Mineral Spirits, Methanol, Cyclohexane, Toluene and MEK, if I recall correctly. That would dissolve just about any organic compound.)
