Shelf life of hypo clear : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

First, thanks so much to everyone who gives their time and expertise to make this such an informative bb. As my printing sessions are, to say the least, episodic, I find that I may have undiluted hypo clear in a partially full bottle for well over a year. Is there an easy way to test its usefulness after such a period of time? Also my undiluted fixer is in a similar situation, however the Tetenal test strips indicate that it's still okay. Thanks

As best I can decipher Kodak's data sheet, it keeps indefinitely in a full container, and about 3 months in a partially full container (the actual entry is NA/3 months).
