    They last forever, IF... you lick them.

    I have a question on the licking. (Apologies if it's been asked/answered before)
    Do you lick each individual bead or one big lap over the entire container?

    Kinda depends on the storage method.

    If they are in a bag or open top container then each bead needs a little love.
    If they are in a tube, then one shot, down the throat should do.

    My first batch turned yellow and very transparent after a few years (hold your smart ass comments there......;-). They got replaced. New batch is going strong, 7-ish years later.

    Hold them where? Lick them don't piss on them? Was that the kind of thing we're to hold somewhere? :)

    I think they last a very long time but balk at "forever". Do like Wilkey and switch to cat litter. Then you can piss on them with impunity.

    Mine have turned a stained yellow color and smell of cedar, but they are going strong. I wonder what the panty hose looks like, that I keep these in :)

    Did you ever feel like a dog
    With your head hanging down
    Lookin for a treat
    Sumpin to eat
    Amongst the panty hose
    In that great garbage can of life?

    He's been around for years and for the life of me, I can't remember his name. Buy with confidence.
