What will be the best and safe alternate to Mineral Spirits and TCE+++++
Am looking for chemical which can replace mineral spirits [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] which is highly flammable. Also for replacement of Trichloroethylene. Appreciate if anyone can suggest alternate.Jayshree Menon

Hello Jayshree. Aqueous cleaning is often possible as an alternate, and n-propyl bromide is a good but expensive solvent for vapor degreasing. But there really is no such thing as a substitute for a chemical, only a substitute for a chemical in a specific application; please describe the application.
