Has a lot of it evaporated? If it has, the salinity will be too high, so adding some distilled or R/O water to it to bring it back within an acceptable salinity range may be necessary.
Otherwise, as long as it is clean water, was in a clean container, and it isn't contaminated with anything, it's fine.
So say, for example, you mixed 6 gallons of SW
2 months ago, put it in a bucket with the lid on and left it. That water is ok to use. Just check the salinity before you use it.
