Abstract

A photoreceptor cleaning composition is provided which comprises a blend of halogenated hydrocarbons, which exhibit no flash point, TAG Open Cup, ASTM Method D-l310, and a petroleum hydrocarbon having a closed cup flash point of over about 135°F. During use a photoreceptor of a commercial copier becomes contaminated with residual toner particles and paper tars resulting in image deterioration, The composition set forth above is found to result in good cleaning of the closely held contaminants of the photo- receptor. The composition as set forth above does not require the use of an abrasive with the cleaning solvent and therefore does not cause deterioration of the photo- receptor,
