Household ignitable liquids

Always use extreme care when handling ignitable liquids. 
  1. Work outdoors. Avoid inhaling fumes and stay away from ignition sources.
  2. Wear protective gloves, eye protection, boots and clothing that covers exposed skin.  
  3. Mix a small quantity of the liquid with cat litter or other clay-based absorbent in a plastic tray or bucket until the absorbent is moist but not dripping.
  4. Set the mixture outdoors in a well-ventilated area away from potential ignition sources, children and pets.
  5. Allow to dry.
  6. If you have additional liquid, this procedure can be repeated, reusing the dried absorbent.
  • Never reuse the same absorbent for more than one type of ignitable liquid waste, however.
  1. Wrap the dried absorbent in double trash bags.
  2. Store the packaged waste safely away from children and pets.
  3. Place the packaged waste in your trash the day it is picked up or taken to the landfill.
  4. The empty cans or containers the product came in can also be placed in the trash.
  • ​Leave the lids off so your trash hauler knows the containers are empty.
