Leave it soak for 2 hours. Then wash it and rinse well! Keep the Mineral Spirits to use on your next batch. The junk will settle to the bottom and you can pour off the top and reuse it.


Let it freeze and its easier to seperate.

John's right about freezing - but first pour in some water which will settle on the bottom. Wait for all the debris to also settle on the bottom and then freeze the whole thing. The water will freeze solid - so pour off the OMS to reuse again - and throw away the "ice"!
