Works great but unused mud won't last long
See other reviews, if you don't use it quickly the leftover mud in the container WILL mold :(

    I used it two month ago and stored it sealed. Today when I opened it to use it again, it’s filled with mold

      I use to use this product all the time. I would buy a large bucket to keep on hand but USG has, apparently, changed their formula so that any unused portion will get moldy within the bucket after only a few months. My guess is that it is an underhanded way to get you to buy more of the stuff (when you have to throw the molded left-overs in the trash). The last time I bought this, I only bought a small tub for a minor repair. When I tried to use it again, the 98% leftover had a slimy mold on top. I search online and others have reported the same... Whatever happened to the pride of making a quality product in America, for hard working Americans? I will try other products. Very disappointed.
