    what to do with a 60 gal kettle?

    I posted a while back and asked how to remove wasp killer from stainless steel. This is the piece of equipment I was referring to. I just really don't know if I would ever use this thing. When I was able to pick this up I had no idea how big it would be.

    remove hornet killer

    I came into possession of a large stainless kettle. The previous owner informed that at one time there was a hornets nest in it. To get rid of them he used an ortho wasp and hornet killer. Do I need to take extra steps to make sure I remove all the poison?

    I just have to rant on this with over 400 in charges in less than one month. Then when I try to straighten it out I get lied to by the bank manager. This is the statement I have posted on other forums. Do not open a key bank account. If your account does not have sufficient funds you will...
