water based parts washer fluid

I bought 5 gal of parts washing fluid from Advance Auto for $60+ It is a very pretty blue . Most of the ingredients is mineral spirits. I think I spent about $20 for the blue dye.

Buy the mineral spirits save a lot on money. I found a 7gal. pail put 5 gal. of washer fluid* and I find it is easier to clean the parts washer. You have less to dispose of when you need to.

Note: Washer cleaning fluid costs $10+ per gallon, $ 3-4 a gallon for mineral spirits $ 6-8 for the blue dye.

Mineral spirits cost $3-4 a gallon. Being STUPID like me...priceless...russ
