O/T: Mundane old stuff on the shelf.

I know we all have some, you pretty much can't help but gather at least a little over time.
I'm talking about simple maintenance things that we use but have somehow never been used for one reason or another.
I am not talking about hard parts like carbs and intakes.
Yesterday I was fiddling with a car and checked the power steering level, it was a little low.
Off to the shelf to get some fluid to top it up. There were four bottles of power steering fluid.
The open bottle was at least 25 years old. The next bottle in line was from a local auto parts store that has been closed for 15 years and has never been opened. The two behind that bottle were newer but certainly not new and also never opened.

I chuckled, used up the old bottle, and went about my day wondering how much other old crap I have still waiting to be used.

What kind of accidental old stuff have you got waiting to be used one day?
