Several years ago I purchased some of the Diamond G Turpentine. I love it! It does not smell like a chemical, but like fresh pine. I love it! I have used it medicinally here and there.
Not long ago I decided to use my turpentine to do some cleaning. I had some dust build up on some wood trim in my bathroom. The turpentine cleaned it beautifully and left a pleasant lingering pine scent.
I decided I should get some less expensive turpentine for cleaning. Yesterday I found 100% pure turpentine (Klean Strip) at the hardware store, so I purchased that. I expected it to smell as nice as the Diamond G. Wrong!
It smells like a chemical. I don't know if the processing or source of trees or something else is the cause of the great difference in smell between those two brands.
I may use the Klean Strip for cleaning. However, I would not use it medicinally. :(
And that is my 2 cents on those two turpentine brands.
