Cleaning Catalytic Converter

My 5th gen recently got the p0420 CEL code, while doing some research on it i found this video of a guy that said to use lacquer thinner to clean the cat has anyone ever done this? I suspect that this wont work and do not plan on doing it at all! just curious what you guys think or if anyone has tried it.

Re: Cleaning Catalytic Converter

Yea I've heard of using bleach to clean a cat that you removed but this guy cleans it by adding lacquer thinner to your gas tank and driving for a while
