Things Not to Store in a Garden Shed
Wine- Storing wine is tricky, and it should never be done in a garden shed. Wine storage can be done if a 13 degree Celsius constant temperature can be maintained. If you allow things to get warmer than that you will cause flat flavours. Any cooler, and the wine could freeze or experience a lack of moisture, which would eventually dry out the corks and seep into the wine.
Storing Gasoline- Highly flammable items like gasoline can be dangerous. Your metal garden shed isn’t the place for it. Gasoline can ignite and explodes. For storage of gasoline you need to make sure there is no ignition source nearby and metal sheds are grounded and far away. Shed should also have proper ventilation to eliminate gas vapours. It is of course, best to avoid storing it altogether because you are putting people at risk.
Clothing and Bedding- Clothing or bedding should not be stored in your storage shed either. There is risk of rodents and bugs and of getting clothes mildewed from damp air. These things can ruin your precious items.
Storing Fresh Food Items- Mice, rats, and bugs love fresh food. Storing seeds is fine just don’t store fresh produce Take it inside your home.

Go to a bank and store those important papers in a safe deposit box.
