You can use pretty much anything that's not abrasive as long as you keep grounding yourself to avoid static damage, but certain materials I suppose are safer than others, I just use tissue.

Nail polish remover works as well. Just be super careful to not get any on the PCBs, acetone eats PCB like a cop does donuts.

I used alcohol and coffee filters in the past

Finally decided to spend a few bucks on this a year or so ago

Works extremely well, so much better than the alcohol and it'll practically last your lifetime unless you build often.
