Acetone has always worked very well for me.
What's important is using a solvent that evaporates quickly, but has the ability to remove the natural teak oils from the wood surfaces after sanding. This preps the surface for a better bond with the initial sealer coat of Cetol - which should be cut 25% with thinner.
It's also important to coat the wood immediately after a wipedown. I don't believe regular thinners and other turpentine products can do this as effectively as either acetone or thinner 216.
