Again, I use mineral oil every day. How can it be toxic when I put it
on my skin? I might add, my Doctor knows I put it on and he has never
mentioned it being toxic. Also, baby oil is mineral oil plus
fragrances, which is what I use daily. I can send you a picture of one
of my baby oil bottles if you want to see it for yourself. Maybe seeing
If you watch the video I linked to, you will see they put in mineral
oil. They didn't say they put in a alternative to mineral oil. They
even pull a vacuum on the transformer can to make sure it doesn't leave
any moisture or air bubbles in it. I watch that show on TV often and I
feel quite certain they would not show that if it were not true and
I'm sorry but I'm going with the info I know to be more accurate.
Watching that video says a lot. I'm sure there are other things that
can be used but the point is, mineral oil is in common use and has been
for a long time. It also doesn't cause shortages when it leaks either
which water does. That's why I'm not putting water near my computer,
cooling or otherwise.
