Dry Wipe Alternatives



We are working with a company that manually cleans small plate glass to remove cutting fluid, glues and other contaminants from the surface with small quantities of acetone and methanol.  They use different wipes such as Kimiwipes, tissues, etc.  After use and solvent evaporation, they still fail the test for the RCRA characteristic of ignitability.
 
Has anybody come across an alternative wipe that would better resist ignitability and eliminate the DOO1 Characteristic.
 
Thanks in advance.
