If you are anything like me, you have enough expired supplement bottles to start your own store. It is said that everyone should be changing out their supplements every 6 months after opening to keep them fresh, so every 6 months I have another 1/2-3/4 full bottle of supplements to find something to do with.
Currently I have not done anything with them because I feel bad wasting them. However, it should not see it as “wasting” these supplements by throwing them out, because after all they did their job.
Either way, I have been looking into options for “utilizing” these expired vitamins. Albeit not for their intended purpose, but at least I would feel like they were used somehow. Here are some options that I have found:
- Use expired Supplements to dust fruit flies prior to starting a new culture to limit the transfer of mites.
- Feed to isopods and/or springtail cultures
- Add to fruit fly media as an extra
- Or lastly, toss them out. However, seeing that the Repashy Calcium Plus smells good, I would mix it with cat litter or coffee grounds so nothing else gets into it.
