Brigette,

You've got some great advice regarding your question. I will throw out one
more thought FWIW. Check out the EPA document "An Evaluation of Substitute
Blanket Washes". It isn't perfect but will lay out some things you should
consider when shopping for a low VOC cleaner. You can get it from the gov
bookstore (EPA 744-F-96-009) but I would try your local PIA affiliate
first. They should have copies. If they don't, e-mail me and I'll see if I
can get a copy out to you.
