I am not challenging Scotts advice, it is good advice for oily woods. I do the same for cocobolo, but I have never wiped down bubinga before glueing and I have never had adhesion problems with it before. That doesn't mean YOU shouldn't wipe it down first, I just wanted to let you know that it seems to glue well and hold up well.

The oil content can vary widely from piece to piece...wipe it down anyway, just to be safe.

I do believe nail polish remover has oils in it & stuff, stuff to make your cuticles nice, depending on the brand I guess. You don't want to add anything when you wipe...I'd just use actone or naptha. Make sure it is dead dry before you add the glue.
