Zippo lighter fluid is fine. It is about as Naptha as Naptha gets. It both cleans and evaporates very quickly. It won't harm the wood.

I use it all the time.

I use a dot of Meguiars Fine Cut Cleaner on a soft rag and some elbow grease. Makes those frets pop right up. Tape up the fretboard so it doesn't get into the woodgrain if you have unsealed fretboard.

Are you running it on a battery and did you leave the leads plugged into it while you were away for days.
