Remove xylene from airless sprayer

I have an airless paint sprayer used for solvent based products. I know xylene can be used to clean the machine after finished.
I want to remove all xylene after machine and lines are cleaned to prevent xylene damaging any seals etc.
I prefer to use warm soapy water but my undestanding is water doesn’t mx with xylene.
Is there anything that will remove xylene and will not be harsh on the seals?

The soapy water would probably work – that’s the role of the soap after all – solubilise things that are not water soluble.
Or you could use a water-based alkaline degreaser (like Kenco from Bunnings). But the soapy water (use Morning Fresh dish washing detergent) would probably work
