How long can mircle whip be out of the fridge before it goes bad?

My husband left it out at midnight and I threw it out at 4 am. He says I am wasting money. I must prove him wrong. If i was smart I would have put it back and let him get sick but I try to be a nice wife on occasion.

  • I was taught "an hour out, then toss it out." I think that came from restaurant work...but it isn't what I do. I would have kept it also. But not told him. LOL

  • mayo goes bad easily... he is the one wasting food by leaving it out- not you by dealing with his mess... although my house is so chilly that it would probably still have been in the safe zone!!!

  • I would have kept it after 4 hours. I only toss MW if it's left out overnight - 8 hours or so. During the day the longest it gets left out is a couple of hours, but that's rare.
