Additive storage on board

Hello All. Basic stupid question. Really tired of additive spilling in bed of truck if additive container is not upright. Keep in bed in a crate here un Florida but in the heat the bottle swells and spills. We all know that stuff stinks! Any storage suggestion. What do you guys do?

I grabbed one of these from Wally's, place in the left rear floorboard and keep several cans of different products, one being the DT2000 bottles. Doesn't leak, doesn't spill, easy to grab for the fill-ups.

I use an ammo can, the sealed lid makes it liquid and air tight, so no spills or smells.

I use the plastic milk carton holder that they use to deliver to the stores.
Roughly 14''x14'' or so.

This is what I use. Found one at tractor supply for like 10 bucks. Plus it fits good behind my rear seat.
