southerndownfanMarch 8, 2013

Hey all! Newbie here! Was wondering if anyone can help me out. I have a old can of paint stripper/varnish remover in the shed and I noticed that its so old that I believe it ate alittle into the can it came in and leaked a tad at one time. My question is how dangerous is this. I know this stuff is highly flammable. Can I buy one of those empty paint cans from HomeDepot and empty whats left in the metal container into the empty paint can. I want to take old my old stains, and such down to the household hazardous depot here in town but cant make it for another week. Can curious how dangerous this stuff is ...like if my shed will blow up or something. Please help!

thanks for the reply....do you think a glass continer with a tight lid would work too? I will of coarse mark what it is on the outside for safety.

Glass would be better than metal or plastic.
