Pour about a 1/2" of acetone into the bottom of the can.

Make sure that you add enough acetone so that it will not run out before the process is complete. This is important because the cooling action of the vaporization stabilizes the temperatures inside the can. If it runs out of acetone, the temperature will rise and any acetone absorbed into the part will boil out and create bubbles.

Also make sure that the part is not touching the acetone and that it is high enough not to get splattered by the boiling action.
