Mineral spirits and paint thinner are different grades of the same thing. When I worked for an Esso bulk distributor we sold at least 5 different grades of Varsol, which is also the same thing. One of the purest grades was used as dry cleaning fluid. I asked a dry cleaner how he got rid of the smell (of which there was very little in that grade) and he said he threw the clothes in a dryer for a bit and that got rid of it.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Mineral spirits, although a bit more expensive than paint thinner, are more refined, doesn't smell as bad and you may be able to use less as a thinning agent. It's available at any big box, hardware or paint store. When you get a chance, please fill out your profile. By knowing where you're located someone on the forum may have a better suggestion of where to buy. Also, whatever you choose to use, make sure you use it in a well ventilated area.
