Re: Oil Smell in Cloths

Does your saw have a blade guard or other enclosure to limit spray? If not they are easy to rig up. I use USP grade mineral oil from the drugstore as cutting oil. It is odorless, nontoxic, fairly viscous, and creates no vapor and little fire hazard. Regular washing will get it out of clothes. It costs a little more, but seems to last forever. I let the slabs drain, bury them for a while in clay (bentonite) based kitty litter, then give them a dip in acetone to completely de-oil them.
