Mineral Spirits.
Purple Power or Awesome citrus cleaner from dollar store may be very good and more acceptable.

Zep Dyno 143. Have used it for 15 years. I think 5 gallon is about a hundred bucks. It evaporates slowly, and dries off nice when you blow it off with an air hose. When its new, it has a solvent smell, but after a week or so it leaves. At work Safety Kleen takes care of the tanks, and I like the Zep better.

I was using Mineral Spirits. Then the price got so high that it is now cheaper to buy parts washer solvent. Available from TSC, Buckiets, Orielly Auto parts as well. Orielly has it on sale every couple of months here.
