    Default Where to Buy Mineral Oil

    I have some of the SHB screened hive bottoms with oil tray. Where do you folks buy mineral oil for a decent price?

    Locally the only place I can find minteral oil is Kroger or drug store (laxative) in a small bottle. Not very cost effective. Vegatable oil is cheaper from costco type store, or if you know someone in the resturant business.

    Mineral oil is also sold in larger containers by animal feed stores. It is used as a mild laxative feed supplement for some large animals.

    Walgreens has it for $10 for 32 oz. seems like a decent price. Funny I was just thinking about it yesterday what it was and where to get it.

    I read you could use the pink anti freeze instead of mineral oil. Anybody else, its pretty cheap stuff.

    I purchase my mineral oil (on the laxative shelf) from Wal-mart at $1.48 per pint which translates to $11.48 per gallon. The local farm supply store wants $18.99 per gallon. Some drug stores are charging two to three times more than Wal-mart for the same size container.
