    Cleaning out a Patient's House and I came across an old tin of Coconut Milk Dated best before dec 2004.

    My Colleague did one better and found this tub.

    Do you think it's still usable?

    It's surprising how long food lasts in decent cans and jars.....but I reckon the Baking Powder will have had it's day. If there was any damp at all, it's dead.

    In all honesty it looked dry, smelled as good as some bought yesterday... felt airtight when taking off the lid.

    No damp or watermarks on the cardboard container.

    However 28years Out Of Date !

    Hey, you're speaking to the lady who has a bottle of 1001 carpet cleaner in the cupboard....and the price sticker says 1/11d :rolleyes:

    It still works, I just use a tiny wee amount to clean the doormats :D....it belonged to my MIL and she's dead over fifty years, so heaven know how old the stuff is.
    Modern stuff is carp in comparison, and I'm down to the last half inch of the stuff !

    You could try a pinch of the baking powder in hot water, if it bubbles then it's still good :)

    That takes me back, "1001 cleans a big big carpet, for less than half a crown" I suppose the carpet would be luxury you can afford from Cyril Lord.

    Now that really is a blast from the past :)

    Isn't it funny how the jingles from the past stick in the mind ?

    Unfortunately I left it exactly where i found it.

    It wasnt mine to take...
    I was just so surprised to see a cooking ingredient in an active used cupboard which was 28years out of date...
