My understanding is that rags give the oil a lot of surface area to react to the oxygen in the air, and that it's worse than your average oily rag. I'm not aware of it being an issue once it's soaked into the wood (no air in there?) My sister has used it on furniture for years and has never had a problem.
 
them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye singin' this'll be the day that I die. Drink tiny ad.
