How do I clean off brake fluid?

I used some as a paint stripper and I'm just wondering what anyone who has used it for that purpose has then used to clean it off.

Try dish soap and warm water?

Okay. Thanks. It's seems to be sort of nasty stuff so I was actually just wanting to make sure there wasn't anything special I needed to do to get all the residue off.

If you can maybe blow off as much as you can off with compressed air from your compressor? Then wash?

I'll try that when I get to the hull. I notice that after I get it on my fingers, no matter how much I wash them, they still feel sort of "tacky" when wet, but after I dry my hands it seems that they're clean. I've run copious amounts of water onto the turret that I'm stripping and it seems to be clean, but since the fiddly bits have all long since detached themselves, I have nothing to lose by giving it a good scrubbing now with dish-soap
