Parts Washer Fluid

Can anyone suggest what to use in a Parts Washer these days??

I am from the days of effective solvents which have long since been banned!

Are any of the citrous based products effective??

Thanks!

Flag down a ''safety kleen'' van and buy some of their stuff off the driver for cash.
Its stronger and less oily than diesel.
Thats what garages use.
