No problem so far. The tubs aren't Rubbermaid type plastic. It's more like Tupperware. Very similar to the plastic jug the mineral spirits came in from the factory. In fact, the mineral spirits, paint thinner, and acetone I bought not too long ago all came in plastic jugs. My wife's fingernail polish remover also comes in a plastic bottle. Must be a different kind of plastic.Just a warning, but if I am picturing the Rubbermaid tubs you are talking about, I have a very good suspicion that mineral spirits will eat in the plastic, and cause it to soften and get out of shape.
