    Default Mineral Spirits vs. Paint thinner...

    Whats the difference?
    Are they they same?

    I understand paint thinner contains mineral spirits, but is there other stuff in there too?

    I like to use pure mineral spirits to wet the wood so I can see figure / blemishes better. Can I use paint thinner the same or will it leave a residue?

    TIA
