I keep a lidded 5 gallon bucket in my shop filled about halfway with water. I usually use a small folded square of paper towel to apply finish to my turned pieces, and as soon as I'm done with it, I toss the oil-soaked paper into the bucket and make sure it's all the way under water. Every few weeks, I empty the bucket and put clean water in it again.
