I don't think so. The best cleaning fluid is ROR Mist. Much better than the 
Kodak stuff. Cuts grease and you don't have to rub a lot to get rid of it. 
I think it can be found in most well-stocked camera stores. They also have 
a web site, but don't have the URL. The guy in the production department at 
work borrows mine to clean the optics on the image setters for the 
newspaper. He fell in love with it on his first use.
