[Histonet] acetic acid

We have always kept our acetic acid under our hood with our other acids.  We do
keep it in the styrofoam container with which it is mailed.  We've never had a
problem.  We only keep about 500ml on hand at any one time.  (We are a research
lab, so maybe histology labs need to have more).

If it is a small amount (>1L) you may be able to store it in your fume hood
assuming you've no contradictory chemicals stored there at the same time.   
Best to keep it in an isolation container like the foam insert it probably came
If you use a dilute concentration on the bench, next time purchase it in the
appropriate dilution rather than as a pure form, and the water in the mix takes
it out of the flammable range and then it can go with your other acids.
Hope this helps!
