    Default Expired toothpaste...

    Is it okay to use toothpaste if it's expired? I was checking on my stockpile, which I try to rotate, using the oldest stuff first, but I don't go through toothpaste that fast when it's just me...

    I found today on some 'Christmas Dawn liquid dishsoap' that I bought on clearance half price an expiration date. What a racket. Absolutely use it.....

    I've heard that manufacturers have to put an expiry on their products because people often have a fear about using products past their shelf life. I personally believe that any liquid or paste type product (such as toothpaste, mouthwash, shampoos and conditioners) have an unlimited shelf life. Call me crazy, but I see nothing wrong with using your toothpaste that is expired.
