Speaking of Acetone, I noticed that an old metal container of it that
I have keeps swelling up and creasing the metal a bit after it's
reclosed, and vapors hiss out of it when it's opened. The container
is slightly rusty, and probably only about six or seven years old. Is
this anything to be concerned about?
