Do spill kits have a shelf life?

In general, the contents of a spill kit have a shelf life of 5 years. However, it’s important to consider the way the spill kit is stored. Exposure to direct sunlight and temperature extremes can decrease the shelf life of absorbents. Absorbents that have been properly stored can last longer than 5 years, though 5 years is the general rule of thumb.
