Xylene/Acetone analine dye as stain, how long before mineral oil based stain?

I have a raw Agathis guitar body.
I have just stained it with a Xylene/Acetone based dye.
My next step is to apply a few coats of a 1:10 minwax special walnut/ mineral spirit stain specifically to pop any figuring I can get to pop.

How long should I wait for the xylene to dry? From what I’ve read Xylene is very smelly, as in you can smell 1 part per million, which means it will likely be dry long before it stops smelling.

Now I know many of you will ask the question “Why?” The answer is because that’s my plan.
