Does it go bad? That would have never crossed my mind. Currently I'm working on a stash that I got in March / April. I still have about 7ish bottles.

That's just what I'm wondering....I don't know if it can go "bad". I will never stop using the stuff so if it will last a year or so I'll keep stocking up when the price is good. Does anyone know if it can go bad??? TIA!

I heard that some kinds can solidify. Don't know for sure.

I bought a TON of ALL detergent when it went on sales last April I have two bottles left and it's still good.

I love being stocked up. Next time it goes on sale I am going to buy enough for a year.

I don't think it goes bad. Maybe I am wrong? I always buy whatever I have coupons for when it goes on sale. I still have 15 or so left. If it goes on sale, I will buy more and rotate. You can never have too much of that stuff as far as I am concerned.

I had some Arm & Hammer liquid detergent that was 2 years old. I saw pinhole sized leaks start to form around the handle where the plastic seams were joined. I don't know what caused this to happen. I wrapped the bottles with duct tape and placed them inside a plastic tote container.
It stopped the leakage and the detergent was just fine to use.

I wonder if the Manufacturer's make the bottles so they will eventually decompose in the landfills. Maybe decomposition starts to take place inside the bottles of liquid detergents without our knowledge until a leak develops.

I have some Tide I bought last year on Black Friday. And it is still perfectly fine - and it better stay that way because I've only gone through half of it.

Where did you get the Tide and what did you pay for it. Just curious, Thanks!
