Default Re: Liberon boiled linseed oil

Please be careful if useing linseed oil.
Cloth dusters, tissue paper or other absorbent materials soaked with linseed oil are very liable to self heat and to then catch fire.

Any such items should be either destroyed by burning, or be placed in a METAL refuse bin, OUTDOORS, and well waway from flammables such as wooden outbuildings or dried vegetation.

Other oils can also be dangerous, but linseed oil is said to be particularly high risk.
Containers of the oil are relatively low risk, perhaps comparable to cooking oil.
Surfaces such as furniture or a radio case treated with the oil are low risk.
The danger is absorbent material soaked with the oil.
