I use Hanco, Charles Lorrileaux (france) D. Smith, Van Son ( oil and
rubber), Graphic Chemical and Roberts & Carlson and mixtures of all of

Less toxic than what?  What solvents are you currently using? Kerosene on
rollers ( the oilly deposit dosen't "burn" or dry out the  rubber )and
mineral spirits on everthing else 'cept orange hand cleaner on me.

Lithotine is a mixture of mostly mineral spirits and pine oil and was
developed for lithographers who were getting dermatitis from turpentine.
