There have been cases where the rotary valve of VIPs have been damaged after using Bouin's fixative without proper washing. 
On the other hand I used to keep picric acid but always in saturated solution, which is about 1%. As long as you have water along with the picric acid bottle, there is no problem.

I am curious how big an explosion there would be from 1% picric acid in acetone if a little dried around the cap.
