Your quote "They all realize how bad Xylene is". Just how bad IS xylene?
I have been using it for 25 years and am still alive and kicking.  We
recycle ours so we don't even have an environmental issue to deal with.
I have never used any substitute that worked as well or better than
xylene itself.  Many claim to be almost as good as xylene and that is
about as close as any get.  As for me, I am sticking with what works.

I use Clear-rite 3 and our pathologists have no problem with it. They
all realize how bad Xylene is. I use H-2 Blue beads to help eliminate
the water from our high humidity.
