Been tidying out the van and realise ive got around 20 spray cans, grease, oil, paint, leak spray, cleaners, etc

Has anyone got any bright ideas for storing them?

Maybe a plastic storage container!

Start collecting wine bottle carriers from the supermarkets. ;)

I was thinking wine bottles! Think the real problem is i haven't got space for them, or i got too much stuff!

Just tie them to a length of string & tow them behind the van - bit like when people got married in the black & white times!

A section of PVC drain or conduit - whichever is a better fit. Cut it as long as you like - I did 2-3 cans high. Cut a slot down one side ( leave the ends to retain the tube structure) to lift cans. Or use some wire or thin sheet metal to make a 'puller'. That may be better as the nearest size tube I could find was about 15-20mm wider than the cans, so a sheet metal puller may help take up space & reduce rattle?
In my case I dropped them behind the metal tool box where I had some dead space. If you can keep the same type of can in each tube, most used on top if they're different contents, it works reasonably well.
