propane for bloxygen

I read a tip where someone exhausts a little propane in the top of a partly used can of paint or varnish to displace the air.

Is supposed to prevent the material from hardening.

I've been trying it.
I have a small propane torch. The trick is to press the button enough so the propane is released but not so much as to light the torch.
