My guess is they should still be OK,do you all treat your soap the same as your sealant/liquid waxes?
The one time I had frozen car wash soap, (Meg's Gold Class), it seemed to be fine when it thawed out.
You might want to set the container in a bucket until you are sure it didn't break when frozen.
Some products will be damaged by freezing and I have had to pitch both polishes and waxes after they were frozen. They separated and when I shook them, they didn't remix. They had a grainy consistency. Not hard chunks, but soft particles that didn't mix together.
Someone told me it has to do with the emulsifiers no longer being able to do their job.
