▫ Mineral spirits are a petroleum distillate offering an excellent way to tidy up after projects using oil-based paint and varnishes.

♡ What can Mineral Spirits be used for?
▫ Thinning oil paint for use on small details, for blending purposes, or for projects when thicker paint might leave tell-tale brush strokes
▫ Cleaning or degreasing machinery or other metal parts
▫ Dissolving oils to create a fresh surface for painting, varnishing, or similar refinishing work
▫ Cost effective thinner for Pure Tung Oil and Dark Tung Oil
▫ To use your Odorless Mineral Spirits as an oil paint thinner, follow the ratio of thinner to paint recommended by the paint manufacturer. Odorless Mineral Spirits should be added slowly and mixed in thoroughly to prevent over thinning. Please note: Odorless Mineral Spirits are not meant for use with water-based or latex paints nor should they be mixed with sealants such as lacquer or shellac.
♡ Directions for Use
▫ Make sure the surface is free of dust or any other loose debris.
▫ Allow the surface to dry, then dip a clean rag in the low odor mineral spirits (you can pour some of the liquid into a separate container for more control) and rub a small amount on a hidden “test area.” This will allow you to double-check whether the item reacts to the spirits.
▫ Clean the rest of the item using smooth, even strokes.
▫ Avoid excess rubbing or pressure, and switch out your rag if it begins to collect too much dirt and grime.
