To give the rest of the class some context: These look like oily rags that have started to combust. Share your story, Mike.

Sorry I thought I did yes, these were rags I used to put boiled linseed oil on a project I had them in a pile in my shop but I had a brain fart and threw them in the trash. A few hours later my daughter said she smelled something funny by my shop. When I walked in the trash can was smoking and this is what I pulled out. It really scared the S):) out of me. Just thought I would share so everyone would see what happened or could.

Put them in a wood stove or a bucket of water. Or burn them yourself somewhere safe.
