Cleaning and Reusing Metal Tins

I have metal tins that contain solvent based inks and metallic flakes. I want to clean and reuse these tins. Any ideas?

You can use them to keep nails, screws, thumb tacks, craft supplies, etc. in. If you can't find a use for them for yourself then donate them to a retirement home or a school for the folk to make craft projects.

Clean them with the solvent for them. Depending on what the solvent is, that could be water, paint thinner etc.

Try nail polish remover also, as that is a common solvent.
