Start digging through the pantry, on a shelf that you've not visited for a while, say years, and you try to move a box to see what's behind it and it's stuck? Because some old can of something or other blew up? Yeah, me neither.
Heh. I spent the better part of the late morning and afternoon getting rid of old jars of peaches and apricots, as well as cans of mandarin oranges. I checked the expiration date on the oranges. 2009. Yeah, I don't visit that part of the pantry very often. I got rid of quite a bit of stuff on that shelf and was able to see exactly what we have. It's a lot cleaner and neater. It really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
The can that exploded was apricots and the sticky was all brown and dark and gross, but it came up pretty easily when I let a wet cloth set on it for a few minutes.
Now there are no cans on the second or third shelf. Just on the bottom, the shelf with the tomato sauce and paste and beans and soup and canned goods that get used on a fairly regular basis. I doubt will have any more explosions.
