How do you safely remove old grip tape from graphite shafts without using a heat gun?

When I don’t have a heat source available, I use part of an old steel iron shaft with a wood handle that looks like item SKU: GW1101.
I soak the tape end of the shaft in mineral spirits for a couple of minutes and scrap it off with the tool. Works fine, kind of messy though.
