Sorry if this is not the right place for this thread, but it seemed like the appropriate place. Is the shelf life of laundry detergent only 2-3 months? I got a printout of a handy man's newsletter under my door from my apartment leasing office and it says the shelf life of laundry detergent is only 2-3 months. That can't be right, can it? The stuff in the store must be sitting there that long!
