      First it was "Future." Then it was "Pledge with Future Shine." Then it was "Pledge Floor Care Multi-Surface Finish." Now it's "Pledge revive it":

      Hi! does it expires!? I mean, I have some bottles bought some 6-8 years ago (when it was just Future) The only thing I noticed is that they turned a bit yellow.

      I've got some that's 10 or more years old. In addition to the yellowing over time, it seems to be more tacky when trying to apply with a cotton swab.

      You sure it's the Future yellowing and not just the bottle? I was wondering the same thing myself a few months ago, and then poured some of the Future into a clear beerpong cup and it looked fine, so I brushed it onto the 757 I just built. After that, I compared side-to-side with the 707 I built in 2015, and they looked the same.

      According to Phil Flory (For those who don't know who he is, is a professional modeller in the UK who makes sanders, etc, but he also runs a huge online community and produces instructional videos and video builds etc.) the Future starts to yellow when it is exposed to sunlight for extended periods of time (I.e. sitting on a window sill). My bottle of Future is really old--8+ years--and is as clear as the day I bought it, but it's been sitting in the basement since I purchased it.

      Hi! I also poured some in a clear cup and its yellow. I have some bottles bought back in 2004 and some newer. These are also starting to yellow. I bought 2 about 2 years ago in Canada (since here in Brazil we cant find it) and they are just fine. Altough the future turned yellow, the models didnt. I have some built back in 2005, 2006 and the clear is still clear.

      Mine are stored inside the model closet far from the sunlight... mystery...

      The bottle I lost in my fire in 2013 was purchased in 1985, and it was fine
