The man who did my sensor clean used lighter fluid - yes the petrol one, which scared me as solvents aren't supposed to come near the glass, but he assures me it's safe, not only for lenses but sensors too.
I wouldn't use petrol near the rubber seals on lenses glass, as to the glasses cleaning fluid, many glasses also have a coating , so if it's safe for them it should be OK for lenses glass. If still unsure then pop into Jessops and buy lenses cleaning fluid.
