About the only one I know of that is safe from an environmental and fire hazard standpoint is Safety-Kleen. I used to use Varsol, but I now have concerns about using it long term and exposure.

Rich1691 -- are you referring to Crown PSC 1000?

michael cook -- this wiki article may be helpful to you, as it contains a list of products used as parts cleaners: Parts cleaner.

Sorry for the delay, had to find a can. Yes that is the cleaner, I see where the price has gone up $10 in less that a year. Imagine that !!! It works well and is slow to evaporate. Not a bad smell like Safety Kleen..
