I also find myself wondering, what will happen to me if I use a health, beauty or food product after the expiration date? Will it involve a digestive ailment, rash, disfigurement or worse? I'd like to think I'm good about not letting things go to waste, but let's face it - we all have to clean out the refrigerator because something has grown green mold, gotten smelly or has expired before we can use it up. I got to thinking, wouldn't it be great if there was an app for that?
I could wake up to my daily calendar and a message that says, "Don't forget to throw out that Cepacol Throat Spray, it's expired." I choose this example because I found one in the medicine chest that expired in 2009! Equally shameful is the Simply Saline that expired in 2008. How clever Siri would be if she could help me out with the mayo on the refrigerator door that expired 3 months ago.
