Fire Safety Guidance with Oily Rags
Wet with flammable or combustible liquid
Oil-based paints, stains, and varnishes are often used for home improvement projects. It is common to use rags to wipe up spills or clean brushes. But wet rags can ignite on their own. They can start a fire if not handled carefully. The same is true of the liquids themselves.

*An average of 1,700 home fires per year are caused by instances of spontaneous combustion or chemical reaction
*An average of 900 home fires per year are started when oily rags catch fire or are ignited.
