A process for the removal of a toner comprised for example of resin, pigment and optional toner additives, from photoconductive imaging members, especially rigid members, which comprises applying to the member Murphy's oil diluted in an azeotropic mixture of an alcohol, like isopropanol and water and subsequently removing the resulting Murphy oil mixture. Other xerographic machine debris, such as hair, paper, carrier particles, and dust can also be similarly removed enabling clean xerographic imaging members. Examples of imaging members include those comprised of alloys of selenium, such as selenium arsenic, selenium tellurium, or selenium arsenic tellurium, coated on a supporting substrate like aluminum.
