Both don't bother the plastic dip sockets but I did once see the MG Chemicals Flux Remover discolour a plastic case, luckily it was on the inside of the case only. I don't know enough about plastics to tell you which type it was. Since then, I've played it safe.
A real offensive product is that contact cleaner. I tried it once on a switch, it got on the plastic button and within 10 minutes, the button became so brittle, it came apart with the slightest pressure.
