Why might a solvent like turpentine be better for removing grease and grime than water

Water repels oil and grease, which will make it difficult for the water to penetrate and move it. Solvents dissolve oils and greases, which effectively removes them from surfaces and, in many cases, prevents them from being redeposited on surfaces while the solvent is present. The solvents themselves are often easily washed off with water later.
