I don't know if they sell it in Europe, but Goo-Gone does a great job on paraffin, is easy to find, inexpensive, and smells like oranges!

I like Para/Gard from TBS...I think VWR also sells it.  Fisher has a
similar product called Parapel, but I have not tried it.

I was wondering if anyone could suggest me a product to clean residues
of paraffin in microtome, bench, tools... When working in Europe I was
using a product "SafeSolv" from Labonord. In my actual lab at San Diego,
they cannot order from this company and I'm not aware about products
that I could find here. I search on the web "safesolv" and it comes
several things, one is this link
http://www.washwax.com/fc_purchase.html, could you please let me know if
any of this products will do the job? I could use xylen to clean but
microtome it's not on the hood to be using xylen and I don't have a easy
access to a hood for this purpose. 

Thanks a lot,
