Storing 5 Gallon Plastic Buckets

Does anyone know of a FOOLPROOF way to treat 5 gallon plastic buckets before stacking and storing them so they will come apart easily when I need one. I like to keep a few around but getting one released from the other is a major problem.

I have never done this with buckets, but have on other things such as glasses. Use paper in between, like several layers of newspaper on the side of the buckets as you stack them together. (07/01/2005)

Wow - what a good question! I'm wondering if spraying the outsides with Pam would work? (07/01/2005)

Try taking a strip of heavy corrogated cardboard and making a triangle that will fit into the bottom of the bucket. It needs to be just tall enough to prevent the buckets form "sealing" together. The top bucket be supported by the cardboard, and prevent them from "sticking". (07/02/2005)

Put the bottom of each bucket into a brown grocery bag and then into the bottom bucket. I stack them 6 high and never have a problem seperating them. (07/04/2005)

How do get the buckets apart once they are stuck together.

Editor's Note: There is probably some suction built up. Take a knife or a thin blade and try to fit it in between the two buckets to break the suction. (07/16/2008)

Grab two Vise Grip locking pliers and adjust them closed. Invert your stack of buckets and clamp the pliers opposite each other on the lip on the top bucket. Place a cloth towel around the handle of the top bucket.Hold the handle of the bottom bucket to the floor with your foot. Lift the top bucket off the stack using your pliers as handles. Repeat as necessary.

Use a compressed air nozzle right at thE connection point between the two pails. A well directed blast from the blow nozzle will slightly inflate the outer pail and blow it off in a second.
