I've done some light research on Google and it seems ABS is smoothed relatively easily by using Acetone in several ways (brush, vapor bath etc.). However it seems PLA doesn't have a nice Acetone equivalent, the closes things are Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) and Tetrahydrofuran (THF) which are sound significantly more hazardous.

It is also known that carburettor cleaner makes PLA softer and rubbery, if white and flakey. ... rb+cleaner
