Q: Do I need to refrigerate my Dan Dan Sauce after opening? 

A: If you are able to keep the sauce free of contaminants such as saliva (think saliva covered spoon), the product doesn't need to be refrigerated after opening. However if you're unsure of how clean you can keep it, just put it in the fridge. 

Q: Are there any special instructions for keeping the sauce from spoiling? 

A: Typically, as long as the sauce still has a layer of oil on top, it won't go moldy. Once the sesame based sauce is no longer covered in oil, which can happen when you get to the end of the jar, we suggest using up the rest of the sauce as quickly as possible.
