Has anyone used acetone to thin their silicone? I know its volatile and should evaporate off but anything I should know? I cant find toulene, and xylene I can only find in $20 gallon jugs.

I am weary of mineral spirits due to residual residues..I have though of the earth friendly versions but havent been able to get access to the chemistry behind them.
I think I am gong to use it.

here is some links for people interested in the chemistry behind it. it is miscible with water and breaks down with UV exposure and is volatile enough to completely evaporate. questions answered.
