Many people believe that the gas explosion is fated or predestined. However, this is not the case because it is usually caused by the victims’ careless actions while using the gas to cook.

A gas cylinder is a pressure vessel used for the storage and containment of gas used in cooking. And the use of gas cylinders in African homes is becoming increasingly popular. As a result, everyone must exercise extreme caution to avoid accidents. In this article, I’ll tell you nine things you should avoid doing when cooking with gas in order to avoid an explosion. They are listed below;
