We have been using Americlear for the past 10 years or so.  It works pretty
well.  When we first started using it, it had a very strong orange smell
that bothered some people.  I haven't heard much about it for several years
and we who work with it no longer notice it.  We still keep a little Xylene
on hand mostly for removing coverslips.
