Cleaning color slides

I am looking for a way to clean colour films and slides as 1-1-1
trichloroethane and carbon tetrachloride are no longer available. I
found some solvents to replace them through a web research but I do
not have any experience with them in this application. They are pure
solvents or commercial solutions as follow:

    Perchloroethylene (tetrachloroethylene), isopropyl alcohol,
    decafluoropentane (Polysolv 4310), heptane+toluene,
    heptane+ligroane, Hydrotreated Naptha, Isopar G Naptha, Exxsol
    D3135 Naphtha, Soltrol 100, 3M Novec Engineered Fluid HFE-8200.

If any of you know more about this it would be helpful. I am more
interested in pure solvents as commercial ones (American for most of
them) will be more difficult to order from France.
