Default Shelf Live of Mothers Products

Hello All,

I have the Three-Step bottles that have been sitting for 5 years on the shelf. Finally have a new car I will be detailing monthly. What I am trying to figure out is does the product I have still ok to use or should I buy new product?

Tks

How and where the product was stored will be crucial to its usability.

If it was stored in a moderate temperature location (60-70º) all the time, it should be okay.

But if it's been in the garage and went through freezing and summer heat, it's likely toast. Open the Step 3 liquid wax after shaking it well, and see if it's smooth or not. if it looks like cottage cheese toss it.

Thanks. They were stored at 60. Will try the Step 3 test.
