Default Uses for Expired Sublimation Inks

I have full bottles of sublimation ink, never been opened, but expired. I was wondering if there were other uses for it directly on the shirt. For example, a way to make it look tie dye, or other method/design, and if I could use cotton, just do to costs. I have my church work camp, and thought there could be someway to utilize these inks and not just throw away. I would use the polyester if need be, just they are more expensive and the cotton may give a different look.
So does anyone have any experience using the inks, right out of the tube, I know it's being artistic. I just thought not wasting the inks, but knowing I can not put in the printer, there could be a way to decorate like a tie dye, or whether the correct polyester shirt, or a cotton.
