    Will Lacquer thinking in saw dust work for cleaning hair in a tumbler or do I need mineral spirits

    I would use Odorless Mineral Spirits only. It's Kerosene without the odor. Usually Tanners use 1 1/2 Qt. per 100 Lbs. of the Hardwood Sawdust (usually 2 Bags). Simply to make the Sawdust damp - not soupy! The Lacquer Thinner should only be used outdoors.
