Can topping compound go bad?
I decided to patch some small holes in the wall today and I went to open a tub of Lafarge low-dust all purpose joint compound, and after I opened it, I looked like this ---->:eek:
The tub is maybe a year or two old and was tightly sealed and kept indoors. There are no funky stains or colors in it, and it still has the right consistency, but it just smells so awful I don't want to use it. Does that stuff go bad over time? Should I pitch it?
