Paula, try Micro-Clear CS from Micron Environmental Industries (phone
703-458-2776, catalog number HC1250). I have been using it for almost 20
years now; since 9/97 on the Leica CV5000 coverslipper. It's comparable
in drying time to other xylene substitutes; but with a much better
safety aspect (and I don't notice any odor).

P.S. I am an end user of the product, not a sales rep. I do not get any
compensation for my opinion.
