    Default A quick question on expiration dates...

    Do iodine swabs expire? I know there are expiration dates on the packages...just wondering if that is something that really expires or if the company is just covering their rear? They are the swabs that they use in hospital settings if that has anything to do with anything.


    Also, I have a bunch of empty vinegar bottles. Was wondering if those would be ok for drinking water storage or just to use to have water on hand for other stuff like washing/watering the garden type of thing?

    I had other questions....but forgot the others when I started typing! Hate it when that happens!
