So the two solvents I use most are mineral spirits and alcohol. I’ve kept oil based finishes and shellac in plastic cups for days at a time without any problem, but I’ve never done that with pure solvent before. Today I put a couple ounces of each in separate plastic cups. Neither one leaked or showed any ill effects after sitting out all day. Acetone is the first (and only, so far) solvent I’ve used that exhibited this problem.
