  • I don't see why not. If they don't look "normal" just toss them.

  • They may not work as well because they will re-mix differently. But they are not harmful , that I know of so you could test a small hidden area to make sure it doesn't discolor something.

  • I've used laundry soap that has been frozen before and its been fine or "good enough for me" lol. If they are important cleaners (like sterilizers) I would call the "Questions and Comments" number on the bottle to see.

  • Okay, i wouldn't think it would make them any less good enough, but i am having trouble figuring out why these things would have been frozen, or why laundyr soap would need to be frozen. Will somebody educate me. Is it because you buy in bulk or something?
