      Xylene for Oz bee's     

Painting my house the other day and ran out of thinners to clean brushes, so of i went to the local hardware to purchase some and literally fell arse over tit on a 20 litre drum of dulux CR Reducer. After the succeeding profanities, i said i will also take that, i would hate to see someone hurt themselves.

I'm not racist,I hate everyone.
