Can I save royal icing in the fridge for a few days?

I made some royal icing (with meringue powder) to decorate cookies, and I'm wondering how long I could save it in the fridge before it got unsafe to use. After 24 hours it was still totally workable, but I'm wondering if there's a point that the egg white powder would get funky...

I store it in a plastic squeeze bottle, so there's minimal air exposure or drying out, if that matters.

    It will separate over time. But you could probably use it after a few days in the fridge.
