    Maybe you can help me with why this is high risk...container with gas has
    a top on it. I do have a device from Harbor Freight that you pour you cleaner in and it pump the stuff across your parts. Then when done you close the lid. That is all plastic. Would that be safer?

    You have gas in a container in the shop. You have cardboard on the walls and that is lined with newspaper. All of this soaks up gas incredibly fast. Do I need to explain this to you? One little harmless, accidental spark and the whole mess would instantly burst into flames. And probably with a bit of an explosion too.
