So I was at Home Depot yesterday, looking for some mineral spirits since I wanted to try a new method for removing the remaining dust on a project prior to staining it.
I couldn't find any mineral spirits by name in the paint section, so I asked the guy behind the paint counter. He told me it was just an aisle over, but all I had seen there was paint thinner, varsol, and turpentine (not to pure mention methyl hydrate...Ice Road Truckers, anyone?).
I returned to the guy behind the paint counter, and he said those were all just different names for mineral spirits, and anyone would do for wiping down wood.
So, I did a little search on this forum and it seems that they are all petrol product relatives, there does seem to be some differences. So, gents, where do you get your mineral spirits, and do you buy it by the name "mineral spirits" or some other variant (like turpentine, paint thinner, etc.).
