    it absorbs water

    There cannot be that much water in the air that was in the bottle

    It will be OK IMHO.

    I’d also say it would probably be fine. The amount of water in the air trapped in the top of that bottle will be tiny.

    For the cost of a bottle I’d just grab a new one from halfords

    I’d use it on the bike. Not on the car.
