I use Formula 83 from CBG. I used Clear-Rite for quite a few years, but
Formula 83 works as close to Xylene as I have found.

We have been using Clear-Rite 3 here at our lab, and we are happy with
the product. Our supplier says it will be on back-order for some time
now. Our crack supply folks are looking for another source. I'm taking
another route to find out what products out there are comparable.
Are all "Xylene Substitutes" pretty much the same and there for pretty
much interchangable?
Are there some to stay away from?
Any help is appriciated.
