    Fire Safety Reminder

    Apparently someone in Reno managed to burn down their house due to oily rags

    Just a reminder that it can happen, and that oily rags used from finishing, especially from things like Boiled Linseed Oil and the like should be disposed of properly in a metal trash can.

    I picked up one just about like this a long time ago. Pretty cheap insurance.

    Yup, good reminder. I actually hear about it all the time from my wife with clients that have fire claims due to painters leaving them laying around.

    Probably a good time to thump the bottom of your extinguishers and shake them up to knock the settled compound loose again. Oh, and change your smoke alarm batteries.
