White mineral spirits?


(liviooo) #1

I use mineral spirits to clean my yoyo but the mineral spirits are a milky white. Is this typical?

Yea it’s white

The mineral spirits I use is pretty much clear. Is it white before you clean the bearing or after?


#4

I’ve never seen white mineral spirits. Look for paint thinner, it’s clear and works they same.

The white and milky kind are what I usually find for cleaning oil paint from brushes for painting houses, but as long as comes off and doesn’t leave a residue it should be fine. Personally, I use artistic grade mineral spirits, in my case Gamsol, since it’s stronger and doesn’t have as much scent when using it.
