Life Lesson #62...

...Be sure to secure the gallon jug of tung oil (a wood sealer/finisher) when transporting it in the back of your car. Oh, and double check the seal on the lid. Otherwise, you and your hubbie (who has WAY more important and pressing things to be doing to your still-to-be-lived-in-house) will spend a couple hours:

-scooping a gallon of oil out of your spare wheel well...
-taking every plastic bit out of the back of your car and wiping it down with paint thinner, only to wonder what the paint thinner might do to the plastic...
-throwing away your canvas cargo bags and probably your stroller...
-replacing the carpet from the back of your car...
-leaving fans running in your car for days on end...
-driving around with the windows rolled down when it's not quite warm enough to do that...

...in the rain, of course.

Yea, just be sure that puppy is secure.

I am soooooo sorry to hear that!!! I did a similar thing with bleach, but it didn't spill as much, didn't get on the plastic, and the bleached streaks were easily covered by color my black fabric with a black sharpie! The smell though, was awful, and it was in the hot summer. Bleah!!!
