I don't know about some of you, but its friggin cold outside.
Last year I did not bring in any of my detailing supplies from the garage, some of which had to be tossed and replaced in the spring..aka liquid glass, this stuff seperates after it freezes. So tonight I ran out and bought three decent sized totes so i can pack up my stuff in the garage and put it in the basement. Anyone else having to do this?

Yup. I really need to get a couple more tubs. I only have one that I left in the garage that has all my towels and pads. The rest of my stuff is in a crappy old cabinet, so I had to make about five trips to the basement with my polishes, waxes, sealants, etc. I think only one of my items says to keep from freezing, but I've been told you don't want any of the stuff freezing, so better safe than sorry.

I keep all my chemical detailing supplies in the Laundry room all year long. I have the top cabinet all to myself.

I have no idea about what to do wtih my stuff. I have several tubs, and they're about $6.97 for a whole freaking lot of gallons' worth if I need any more. I have lots of paints, resins, detailing things, and maybe even some hidden goods under the stuff I'm aware that I have. All my detailing stuff will probably go into a clear plastic tub and on a top shelf in my closet where I can easily reach it but also keep it out of the way.
