I would definitely not use alcohol laced with glycerine and wintergreen, and...I don't think you're supposed to use a hammer!

This video looks more reliable:
How To: Take apart and repair Lenovo x220t / x230t

The service manuals for these machines are also online. Lenovo's term is Hardware Maintenance Manual.

A search for thinkpad x220t service manual turned up the manual for my laptop. Substitute your model for 'x220t'.

If that doesn't work, you might want to try this third-party archive:
Hardware Maintenance Manuals - ThinkPad (download links)
Index of /support/hmm/hmm_pdf (files).

The hardware manual for the X220 explains the disassembly steps and gives specific instructions on the amount of thermal paste to use.
