Cleaning Kevlar speaker woofer?

On one my 8" Kevlar woofers, there are two transparent but somewhat visible spots (a small splash of something that wasn't water?). When viewing the speakers in the reflection of light I find it distracting. Can I use a slightly moist towel or rubbing-alcohol soaked cotton swab to erase the spots? I'd be applying as little liquid as possible on the Kevlar because I'm just trying to do minor spot cleaning - would it still be unsafe to do so?

Kevlar is fairly chemical resistant so you should be fine. Try using water first, if not diluted alcohol should be fine.

There's no such thing as bullet proof vests. The proper term is bullet resistant or ballistic vest. Virtually any rifle round will zip right through both sides of a Kevlar vest. Even if a handgun round doesn't penetrate the Kevlar you can still die from back-face deformation.
