What is the shelf life of Timbor?

How long can Timbor be stored? Does it have an expiration time limit? Is it harmful to humans? Can it be used in kitchens?


Timbor is a wood treatment product that is mixed with water in a one gallon sprayer and applied to raw, untreated, unsealed, unpainted wood.  It can be used on any raw wood anywhere in the house.  Timbor is made from the element Borate, which is a natural occuring element in the earth.  It is very safe and non-toxic.  Timbor will last for years on the shelf as long as it is not exposed to moisture or water.
