Does Sealant/Polish/Wax Expire?

Hello,

Spring is around the corner and I'm getting the itch to detail my car after a long painful winter.

I've had some products sitting in my basement for about two years. Do they expire? I'm wondering if I have to buy new sealant, etc.

I currently have Meguirs SwirlX for polish and Blackfire Wet Diamond for sealant.

Thanks!

The Meguiars should be just fine. I can't comment on if the Blackfire expires, but 2 years is not enough time for almost any polish/sealant to go bad, especially if stored in a shaded/cool basement. I'd only start getting concerned after 5+ years, and probably not even until 10 years...and that's in a garage.

I've been using 9 year old Meguiars on my '68 Chevelle with no issues.

Ah, perfect. I don't have to spend more money on detailing products this year then.
