    Default Old Wax

    Unused toilet wax been baking out in my hot Dallas garage for 2 summers now (and 2 winters but our winters are pretty lame). Is it OK to use?

    If it looks good, it's good. I'm pretty sure bees make stuff to last like that.

    I guess not since it still looks like its original shape.

    If it hasn't melted or radically distorted, it should be fine. It may be a bit harder than a newly boxed one, but it should still function properly. Let it come up to room temp before using if it's cold in the garage.
