use mineral spirits next

time, not lacquer thinner. Hey, in my woodshop we sometimes use lacquer thinner as a stripper for varnish!!!

Most varnishes thin with mineral spirits. It's a good solvent to use to wipe down a surface before a varnish coat- use a slightly dampened rag or paper towel and wipe away.
