Leak in EPDM flat rubber roof

I've got a leak in the EPDM roofing material in the area around a skylite that I need to patch. I would like to know if automotive brake cleaner is okay to use as a cleaner for the patch.

absolutely not! But i think you can use the purple primer for PVC pipe in a pinch. If you have to run to the store to get some, why not just buy a can of EPDM primer? The big box stores have it near the rolls of epdm shower liner.

A rag soaked in Acetone will also work well, but use care with it. (gloves, and spread the rag out on concrete to dry when you're done.)
