    I need a fluid that will clean the rubber pinch roller on my cassette deck without drying or damaging the rubber. Any recommendations?
    Thanks.

    Use lighter fluid (naptha) until all brown has been removed & the marks on the wipe are black.

    Denatured alcohol (Methanol) has been recommended for cleaning pinch rollers (removes surface deposits). Naphtha VM&P has been recommended for reconditioning pinch rollers (softens and removes rubber).

    99% ISO is all I have ever used for that. Something different for rejuvenation.

    Copy repair folks use a rejuvenator on copiers for all the rubber bits, not sure what it's called.
