Thanks for the warning Tom. I'm glad you told me because the H2O temp in my bathroom is 140* and I've been heating up my cans a little longer than a couple of minutes. That's good advice I'll be using. Man! If I would have exploded one of those cans in my downstair's bathroom, my wife would have been one pissed off woman!
