    I don't know what the ingredient in the orange-citrus stripper is, 
    but have used an orange-citrus solvent to replace xylene in 
    dehydrating tissues for microscopy.  It smells very strongly like 
    oranges so I would expect googling for citronal or similar might hit 
    the material.  Xylene is a fairly non-polar solvent, and formerly a 
    common ingredient in paint thinner, etc.  It's carcinogenic, hence 
    the replacement.  In general, one would want to use these solvents in 
    a fume hood, or failing that, a very well ventilated area.
