Essentially mineral spirits, Naptha, Acetone, and Lacquer thinner will all strip the oils from oily imports, so you can get glue adhesion. I don’t use them often, but when I do I use Acetone now. Years ago I only bought MS, so I used that, and it worked.

The only things I have used it for was glue ups, and way back TBIII and Ape glue were not invented, pretty much was Elmers, or hide glue. Stuff still held together with MS, and Elmers. Some even advocate soap and water on Teak to remove the oils. I’d worry more then about grain raising, not sure if it would be significant enough, but I never did the soap and water deal
