Use a 5% solution of a strong lab detergent in isopropyl alcohol. Since the cleaning cycle is completed at 50ºC that will be enough and you will not have to expose yourself to xylene vapors.

Subject: [Histonet] Xylene substitutes for tissue processor clean cycle
The technician who does preventive maintenance on our LX-120 tissue
processor recommended that we use xylene as the solvent in our clean cycle.
We are considering using a xylene substitue in the clean cycle and would
appreciate any recommendations.
Thanks very much,
