Interesting. As long as you wash it thoroughly the second time it looks like it would be fine. I have just always been taught not to use it for a cleaner, and some primers like the XIM mentioned in a previous post, specifically say in the specs Not to use mineral spirits for cleaning.

Also, the system in the link doesn't include the use of a primer.
An easy way to be sure would be to ask a SW rep where you bought the primer about cleaning instructions for that specific product.

Mineral spirits also seems counter productive to me. It seems like it could cause more problems than it will solve.
