    Never had the used TO soaked rags self combust. Might see how easily it ignites after next application as I reckon there is more linseed oil than flamable stuff.

    A bit of web searching seems to indicate that you need a lot of oily rag in order for self-combustion to occur. Also, the hotter the air temperature, the more likely it is to happen. I cut clean cotton rag into roughly 10cm squares, and the Tru-oil only goes onto a small portion of the rag. There are some videos of linseed oil soaked rags catching fire, but there's a big bunch of material all crushed up and it's all oil-soaked. The outer layers insulate the inner rags, allowing temperature to build up, as some heat is given off as the oil dries and oxidises in contact with air.

    So a small bit of rag opened out, isn't going to cause any problem.

    Might relate to the method of using paper towell or cotton wool scrunched up into a ball and placed inside a rag, fully soaked, and rubbed in vigorously as that does generate heat with lots of finish still trapped in the applicator.
