Tired Tins or Tired Product?
A few weeks ago a guest in our home remarked that they still had a Manuka Balm tin on their kitchen bench with the red label. Oh dear. That label was in production from 2013 to 2016, so yea, that's OLD.
It's inspired to me to write a quick guide to doing a tidy up of all of your Goodbye products. Because summer is coming, and getting this sorted now will keep your product and packaging fresh, and help you know what you need for summer.
Chances are the use dates are long gone on labels and tins. If you remember the date you opened them, plan on 6 to 12 months of fresh product. But if you're like me, I've got quite a few on the go, and they go missing, and then appear. I fish one from the bottom of a purse, find one in the laundry... pretty random.
Sun Balm or Manuka Balm - are they still good?
For products packaged in aluminium tins, begin to age more quickly once you start using them.

If your product is good but your tin is tired
It's time to love up the threads, and at some point, recycle that aluminium
Cleaning threads every now and again is like wiping off the kitchen bench - it just feels so good to do it.
glad you asked!
It's true, aluminium tins are not forever containers, they are soft metal and bruise in pockets and purses over time...
