Not everything can be safely stored in the garage.
Some things things need to be accessible at all times; other things we see only every 10 years when we move, but want to keep them anyway. That's why it's important to have storage systems that work.
But there are certain things that don't belong here, no matter what. It's a health and safety thing. Here are 3 garage storage no-nos:
