I don't feel like the real thing is that expensive, but if you only want a tiny amount, or if it's an 'emergency', one more easily available alternative is zippo-type (liquid) lighter fuel.

Same as with white spirit, be sure to wash the area thoroughly with shampoo afterwards!

If you were just wanting a quick fix with something around the house because you didn't have a dedicated product, WD-40 can work, as can citrus based degreasers-in both cases be sure to wash the paint thoroughly afterwards.
