Cycling: Slime inner tubes

My 3 year old Slime inner tubes suffered a puncture, but then did not self-heal. I figured they were just too old now, given not much green slime comes out of them any more.

But as I extracted the inner tube from the tyre, examination of the tyre showed a thorn to be inside the tyre, presumably constantly irritating and puncturing the tube. So I bought a pair of new ones anyway, but the old one may still be fine… but I won’t risk it.
