The Hottest Questions About Canisters
Do you want to know about Canisters? Here are some frequently asked questions.1. Is it safe to preheat spraypaint canisters on a gas grill?Really? Wait until the outside temp is close to 60 degrees to use spray paint. Right now, your RV wheels could care less. Anyway, spray paint canisters on a gas grill.....seriously? I guess you could try, however, the neighbors may call the police because they fear of a bomb in the area.2. How do you safely and legally dispose of old, damaged/unsafe camp stove gas canisters that are still full?Putting my comment into an answer - I do not think you need to over think it, they are nothing special. Propellant for most aerosols is Butane, these have an odor added, so are no different than a can of air freshener and could be used as one if you like the smell of gas. As the amount of butane in each can is not that much, I would put them into a cooker (outside), use a detergent spray to check for leaks. If there is no leak, light it and let the gas burn. If there is a leak, I would leave the cooker outside in a safe, open space (away from combustibles) and let the gas run out without lighting it, you may want to open the valve on low and leave it overnight. Ideally do this on a day with a bit of breeze to disperse the gas (mainly for the smell). As gas is heavier than air, I would sit the cooker up high on a table top, and make sure there are no open pits close by (e.g. swimming pools etc.) for the heavy gas to accumulate in. Some might suggest keeping smokers away while doing this - however I am normally non-interventionist, and believe in letting nature take its course.3. Can I mix deep red canisters and accents with our arabella plate set?Wow, that is a challenge. They do not really go together -but you can work it. deep red, dark blue, and a little gold in kitchen colors/accents [ DON'T add any more colors ]: canisters [ the dark red ] curtains placemats small appliances [ toaster, blender, etc. ] maybe white walls, appliances, floors, or counters?4. Will Coleman fuel canisters fit the Jetboil Flash Cooking system?I would not count on it. If you are smart you will go to the sporting goods store and check for sure. The way it appears online shows a Jetboil canister which I am sure would be expensive5. is it bad to store co2 canisters (for pellet guns) is freezing conditions?The cartridges are filled with liquid CO26. My friend bought me a Walther PPK BB-gun for my birthday. It uses 12g CO2 canisters, how many shots?Well why ask on Yahoo Answers when you can go in your backyard and count how many can hit the Coke can from 10 feet. Also, what brand is your PPK? And what is the fps (speed)?7. I am looking for kitchen canisters. 4 in total, flour, baking soda, baking powder and sugar....?Good Luck---I've been around awhile, and I have NEVER seen canisters labeled for "baking soda" and "baking powder"....generally those are things people keep in the cupboard....so I am guessing your best bet will be to label them yourself, and get some kind of glass paint from a craft store to do it... Rarely do I see canister sets labeled at all, with names of what you are 'supposed' to keep in there..I guess they figure everyone keeps something different...Like for me, keeping flour & sugar on the counter in a canister set attracts ants in the summer, so I keep them in plastic containers with tightly sealable lids in the cupboard, and my canisters have rice, beans and tea in them... You might be able to find the labeled sets in a thrift store, I think that labeling thing was more common for goods produced awhile ago, but like I said, still doubt you will find it saying 'baking soda & powder." Just find a set that matches your kitchen, and like I said, paint the words on yourself with paint for glass or ceramics, whatever the canisters are made of...some paint comes in a bottle where you can do the words without a paintbrush, just squeeze the paint out as you are writing....If you do paint on them, just hand wash them in cool water when you need to wash them (not in dishwasher or with hot water) and do not use a scrubber over the area where you painted. Good Luck!
