Upon considering the two mineral spirits in stock at HD I chose to opt for this product. Upon opening the container and seeing this thicker white fluid I was confused as other mineral spirits I used were clear. This is thick, doesn't wet out well and is overall a terrible solvent. The oil I mixed with this product readily separates. So I checked out the msds on this compard to the "regular" klean strip mineral spirits. "15-40% petroleum distilates" vs "100%". Also said 60% water soluble vs 0% water soluble. So I paid for a jug of watered down mineral spirits that isn't good for anything. Terrible.

The odorless characteristic was nice, however, I like the clear color of mineral spirits better as it is easier to tell how clean your brushes are after using the mineral spirits.

Works well without the smell, I will continue to use this product over regular paint thinners.

I accidentally picked up this product, the label is misleading. This is a milky white liquid of some sort probably bonded with water, that is supposed to be used in lieu of the solvent based mineral spirits. I've finished furniture for over 30 years, If you try to use to thin polyurethane for application it turns the whole mixture white, it is difficult to mix in and doesn't let the poly set and cure up like you are used to if you are used to solvent based. It did dry cleat but the rag I used to wipe on was still damp and flexible 24 hours later. so , I didn't want to do the usual sand and recoat. I suspect the poly will take an extra few days to "harden up" The poly I thinned after 24 hours was separated into layers with this milky stuff on the bottom, if this is what it does on your furniture, there could be all kinds of problems from re-dampening the wood under the poly.

This does not last long in storage. It never got too hot or cold in my basement on a shelf. I went to use it after about a year and it turned into a milky white gel. Nothing like the old mineral spirits that never went bad.

Doesn't work on oil base paints. All others it works.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hotwheels65 Does the job effectively
The last gallon I bought had lasted me 12 years. I must admit I was skeptical of how effective the new "environmentally friendly" version would be. It does seem to do the job just as well, but I really don't care for the milky color. I prefer the colorless version I had previously. My application is to clean out brushes from non latex paints and stains.
