Don't make the mistake of assuming that caulk doesn't expire. Though it lasts a lot longer than milk does—typically about ten years—both latex and acrylic caulks eventually do give out.

If you discover any sealant that has dried up and cracked, remove and replace it. After all, cracked caulk is little better than no caulk whatsoever.
