Default Before I Toss Out Old Cans Of Cabot's

I have over a dozen (various color) full cans of Cabot's stain dating back to the mid-80's. I hate to simply recycle them and didn't know if there was a use for them. Some tell me that the old stuff is better than the new ... perhaps I should skim off the clear oil for preservative?

If they are oil stains, they will probably still work. You probably have skinning on the top that can be cut off. Then strain it. The skinning on oil based products actually helps to preserve the product because it won't allow air in.
The problem is, it is anybody's guess as to how well it will perform once saved. The one use that I could think of is using on the under side of deck so that if it doesn't dry it won't be a huge mess. Just a thought...
