I'm using baby oil to blend, but Gina K. has posted earlier about the different grades of mineral spirits. Here's part of what she said.

Usually hardware store OMS has a fast evaporation rate as it's meant to be used in a well-ventilated area or outdoors. Artist grades evaporate much more slowly.

Just an FYI.
