I use the disposable latex gloves when I work with BLO, tung oil, etc.
When I'm done I hold the rag, peel the glove off my hand so the rag is
inside, fill the glove with water and tie it like a balloon. Then it
goes into the trash.
They generate heat while drying. So, if you contain the heat, there
may be enough heat contained to start the rag on fire.
Simply spread the rag out flat until dry...usually a day will do it.
Then take it outside to a trash container away from the house.
Let it sit in a wide-rimmed container...outside, with no
lid...somewhere where animals and humans can't get to it. It'll
evaporate in a day or so. Then wash out the container...or toss it in
the trash...again, in a container away from the house.
Have a nice week...

Lots of good suggestions. Generally I use disposable rags and just toss them
in the shop woodstove. Spontaneous combustion isn't an issue. Of course if I
have a rag soaked with thinner I am very very careful tossing it into a lit
