Question on olive oil shelf life
I use olive oil for a face wash (works wonders!). I keep my "bathroom bottle" under the sink and it has not gone rancid.
Over Thanksgiving, I went out of town and put a small amount in a container (Gladware) to take with. I've been using the oil out of that to use it up. Last night, I found a small amount of mold close to the top of the container. The oil didn't smell funny and had no mold in it, though.
Why would that mold, but not the original bottle?
