mineral spirits

I have only used mona lisa thinner with my paints and matte varnish. Well i ran out and my husband was going to the store so i asked him to get me some more but he came home with mineral spirits. Does this work the same as the M.L. thinner? Is it better?

I use the local hardware store’s store brand odorless thinner for about 5 dollars a quart.

I have also used odorless mineral spirits…

I have NEVER used Mona Lisa products.
