Ok everyone,
What non xylene based products are being used by everyone?  What are their
health risks, hazards, etc. compared to xylene?  Do they work as well as it
does?  Is it easily disposed of?

The lab here uses xylene, which is my choice, but the restrictions on
storing, pouring on/off, disposal, etc. borders on paranoia...:)  So I am
exploring the alternatives.  The only exposure I've had to this type of
product was years ago.  Hemo-D, which gave me tremendous headaches....

I appreciate all your imput, and thanks in advance!
