RE: Locked up aerosol paints, fixatives, etc.

My brother suggested I go thru all of the cans - the seals of one or more had probably been compromised. I dreaded the task, but he was right - there was gooey stuff oozing from the vertical seal on two cans! Perhaps this will help someone else.

        We have to lock ours in a vented non-flammable metal cabinet in the wood shop area. You might be able to do that if you have a shop. Those cabinets run about $500 - $600 and that's why we don't have one. jancy

                Maybe you can help with a question.
                 
                 All of the aerosol paints, fixatives, and toxic glues are stiored in a locked cabinet, about 3'x4' during the school year. Whenever I open it, the fumes are quite strong smelling. Would it be safe to leave that stuff in there during the summer? Is the stuff so flammable that it could start a fire? My classroom does get used all summer (both closets stay locked). My one option is to put it into my good sized walk-in closet, instead.
                 
                 Just wondering 'cause of the fumes.
                 
                Thanks for your input,
                 
                Jan
