Does Prime go bad??

Today, I bought a bottle of Prime water conditioner and put in my glovebox for the ride home. I then proceeded to forget it was there and left it there for several hours. I don't think it got over 110 degrees in there, but I'm not sure. Is it safe to use? Will it still be effective?

I think it should be fine.

Prime is strong stuff, if it still smells like rotten eggs, you should be good to go!

Thanks guys for the input. I smelled it and it smelled like rotten eggs, which at first i thought was bad because i had never smelled prime before, but now I know. I'm going to go ahead and use it tomorrow during my water change.
