Our window tinter here at the shop uses them for soapy water for tinting and applying clear bras, he drills a hole in the lid and installs a tire valve so he can charge it up using a tire chuck and shop air. he then uses a black coupler and hose to a spray wand.

He says he also uses them at home to keep bug killer in for spraying around the yard etc.

You will see a LOT of yard services places using them for pesticides and the like.

Carpet cleaning companies use them to store detergents and dirty rug-water...

The car wash I frequent uses them for the wheel cleaner they apply before the car heads in to the wash.

e-mail sent.

As a born and raised Iowan there are several things about that ad that piss me off. First and foremost, he's making all Iowans look bad by publicly advertising his stupidity.

He could have sparayed his chemicals and diesel fuel just as well with plastic tanks from Home Depot for a fraction of the price.

AND!!! For the love of God Almighty, after ruining them, he's still trying to get $60 a piece when I can pick them up for $45 each at MANY places online, and they'll still be safe for beer.

****ing idiot.

Sent two emails.

Also going to give him a call at around 10pm (that should be about 2 hours past bedtime for the hillbillies in that part of the state) just to drive the point home.

Assuming he doesn't hang up on me within the first 5 seconds, my plan is to offer him 5 bucks each for them.

I figure heavy doses of Dawn dish soap over a period of time should remove the petrolium products (diesel fuel). Lots of washing and lots of rinsing, plus new o-rings. Who knows, they might be revivable.... If not, I can use them to spray weed killer on my lawn....

I hope that he returns you call when he wakes up at 4 AM.

He can counter your offer and tell you that he will take $50 each.

Oh, that's no problem. I turn my ringer off when I go to bed. I'll respond to his voicemail at my leisure, probably around 11 am. And if he want wont' take less than $5 each for cornies that have had diesel fuel in them, I'll just politely decline, and, in the spirit of generosity, tell him where he can get more of them, food safe, for $40 a pop if he actually does manage to find someone stupid enough to pay him $60 each for these.

All in all, I think I'm being pretty darn helpful to the guy....
