Response to Odorless solvents caution.........

Dear Rickster

I am not an expert on the manufacturing of turpentine. Here are a few facts about the solvent in which I am aware. There are different types of Turpentine. Some turpentine is made primarily from petrol. Other types are made from minerals. Some types of turpentine are made using synthetics. Turpentine made from petrol contains the least amount of odour. I have not ever seen any documentation of manufacturers adding other chemicals to turpentine to reduce its odour.

Smelling turpentine is not hazardous unless you are in a room completely filled with the stuff for a long period of time. The problem is that some people simply do not like the smell of turpentine. This discomfort has been the cause for companies to manufacture it with materials to reduce the odour. One example of these materials might be petrol

Thank you
