I guess it all depends on what it is.  If it is trichloro anything,
it is very poisonous to your liver.  If it is pentachloro anything,
it is very bad for the environment, sinking quickly to the water

Isopropyl isn't the most aggressive flux solvent, but it does work
well with a little toothbrush scrubbing action.  And it leaves the
boards very clean.

I prefer it because it is relatively benign to the environment, and
to my health.

Best probably would be pharma grade ethanol.
