It's Dettol I've used in the past for stripping and am pleased with the results on both metal and plastic, especially metal. With an old toothbrush I've found there to be almost no residual paint left at the end, and once sprayed they look like miniatures straight off the sprue.

The one thing I will say though is use rubber gloves or your hands will have a burning sensation for days.

Heresy grows from idleness.

Do you have to use a glass container? Because I don't think that I'm going to get my rhino into a jam jar.

Dettol comes in a plastic bottle so is fine with non-glass containers.

For a rhino an old washing-up bowl would probably work
