acetone

yes, either dip in, or pour on it, better to dip in it, but very short time, like 20 sec. I also depends on the infill rate, if there are too many holes, acetones will go deeper and it will need to dry long time. Actually, better to dry it well, because, if not and you paint it, or put grease on it, it will be trapped and make your part really soft and disformed.

 

Actually, there is a good method of finishing ABS, with acetone vapor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvCEnA0NEG4
