Cleaning Record Player motors

I wanted to double check my process with everyone before I accidentally damage something. I have an AC motor that runs slowly from old lubrication, and I'd like to clean it and relube. If I understand correctly, I need to remove the bearings, soak them overnight in ronsonol lighter fluid, soak them overnight again in fresh zoom spout, and reinstall. I've heard that ronsonol, when left overnight, should evaporate so I won't have to dispose of anything. Is that true, or will I still need to take the used lighter fluid to the hazardous waste disposal center?
To keep your tubes running smoothly, make sure to dust underneath the glass as well.
