Out of Date Scholl Polishes

I've got S20 Black, S3 XXL Gold, S40 and A15 and when I was tidying my gear earlier I noticed that they all a few months out of date now. I'm a bit miffed as none are a year old (to me). I haven't even used the A15 yet.

Will these be OK to still use? what even happens to them when they go out of date??

I think as long they haven’t been exposed to frost they will be ok. I’ve got some 10 year old Menzerna under the stairs that I’m going to try this year. Give them a good shake first.
Hopefully someone who has used out of date polish will post a reply.

Don't use them, they will destroy your paint in a second. Send everything to me for correct disposal

Assuming they have not been exposed to temperature extremes they should be fine. Maybe give them a good shake to make sure they have no separated

Not a daft question, no. It's what I thought the date was at first, but alas not.

My S40 was about 1 year out of date. Well, product looks the same, but now working time is more shorter, product dries on panel very quickly. It's from my experience...

I've got S3, S17, S40 & A15. Brought them two years ago and have only used about 50ml of each 250ml bottle. I think they are OK as I have stored them in a stanley fatmax toolbox in my garage so the temperature change is gradual
