We have been using Xylene substitute on our processors for five years.   It
works much better than limonene substitutes, with fewer health concerns.  A
few years ago there was an article in the Journal of Histotechnology
comparing the various xylene substitutes on the market.  The study was done
in Toronto, my old stomping grounds.  Xylene Substititute, now called
Histosolve, was rated favorably.  You may be able to get a reprint of that
