Storing cleaning products.

I think I Ef'd up... Been in the teens most of the week and I finally had time to go out and grab my cleaning stuff off the shelves of our storage building. Some of the car wash is froze, but my big question is if it thaws out will I be okay?

Should be fine...waxes and stuff are what to watch out for, but for general OTC products they should be fine as well.

Hmm, we bought some frozen Fuzion for a good price just to have for our personal vehicles. Worked just like normal.

when it thaws look at it, if its separated in the bottle toss it. or just doesnt look right anymore.

In the winter I store all my stuff in a plastic bin you can get at the stores for storing like christmas stuff and I put it in the basement of the house

It could have a layer of seperation as well. In which case you remove the ruined layer.

its usually the whole bottle all messed up the compounds in the wax or soap that where bond are now unbond and no matter how much shaking you do it wont go back. the liquid stuff. personally I have forgot before my stuff outside in the winter I just toss it, go buy new stuff.

have done the get rid of the bad section even the rest it doesnt treat or work correctly.

I'm talking about paste wax, just from experience. But the stuff we got had frozen in the shipping truck and on the top layer it was cracking, beneath is was good stuff.

i was talking more about liquid stuff being from what i see in his pictures. yes most paste stuff is salvageable some it really messes it up living up here in the freeze belt I have seen almost every product frozen then thawed do to my own stupidity forgetting it in the garage



those aerosols should be fine Cody never had issues with those usually only the pressure isnt as good it seems some times not all the time

I figured most of them would be okay. Just shake them vigorously and see if they remix.

It stays in the single digits for months here.... I just leave all my car stuff in the garage as long as it's less than 3/4 full (so it doesn't explode and leak) and let it freeze. I've never had a problem.
