I have used 70% rubbing alcohol to clean my Nikkor 35mm F1.8G AF-S lens before. Here are my questions.

1) Does using this alcohol easily strip away the lens coating? Even with light pressure?

2) How do I know if I stripped away any coating at all?

3) Some say using alcohol is a good way to clean a lens, while others say it is bad. What is the truth, if any?

I've used 91% alcohol for stubborn spots for years with great results, never a problem.
