Does playdoh expire? 


It does! I’ve actually let my homemade playdough expire before, and it is not a pretty site. I threw the bag away immediately. 


Average time is 6 months. 


I like to store ours for 3 or 4 months max. 


This helps me in never seeing that unpretty sight ever again AND I feel comfortable letting my girls play with it as well! 


So, if you are asking yourself this question, “Does Play Dough go Mouldy?” 


Yes, it can! So 3-4 months max is my go to.
