Storing detailing supplies

I have a detached garage that isnt climate controlled. Is it ok to store my detailing supplies, waxes, sealants, other sprays there?

I am planning to buy a cabinet to store all my stuff there, but I don't know if heat/cold can screw things up.

We are talking about texas weather here. Thanks

Most products indicate that they are not to be frozen. Hence they go to my basement.

Got a shovel?

You have your answer above: keep the supplies from temperature extremes. So if your detached garage gets below freezing in winter or gets really hot in summer, then you'd be smart to keep your detailing chemicals somewhere else such as your house's mudroom or laundry room.

thanks for the reply. what is considered temperature extreme? My garage doesn't go below freezing, and on summer months, it can get up to 100 degrees, but not more (some days). Is that too hot for the wax and supplies?

I keep my stuff in the basement as well. But I think anywhere with room temperature would be fine
