  • If they are not damaged, I would say with a good cleaning, maybe a steralizing before first use, it would be fine.

  • as long as there are no cracks, or swollen tops or sticky they should be fine

  • I think latex deteriorates after a short period of time. They become more yellow and brittle. Silicone last for a longer time.

  • As long as they arent cracked or gummy and you know they are BPA free (some older things arent), go for it!!
