I use lacquer for most of my project finishes. When cleaning my spray gun, I go through three rinses. It troubled me how much lacquer thinner I was wasting in the process. Well, here’s how I now waste less. I save the rinse material in a can marked “Used Lacquer Thinner.” It can be reused in two different applications — either to thin down more lacquer for spraying or as the first rinse when I clean the gun again.
