That pet bottle that you buy

To store water in the refrigerator..

Is the same quality as the disposable mineral water bottles.

Did you know that?

yes yes i knew! And so I have tupperware jars to store water. But lately, cos of the overbearing presence of tupperware everywhere, I am beginning to suspect it too.
Any idea what quality that is ?

So does it mean that the disposable mineral water bottles can be preserved to store water in the fridge ???? :)

How do we know said...

Hi G: I checked yesterday. Tupperware is supposedly a slightly better quality of plastic. Wait let me try and get that link for you again. http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/plastics.html Tupperware is Grade 5, these bottles are Grade 1.

Hi Himashu: :-) I think, this means that we should reuse the mineral water / Thums up bottles, but ensure that we change them often enough.

Generally, a plastic is mistaken as a
PET bottles.PET bottles are made from polyester granules which are certified as food grade and are safe.
All pet bottles are plastic bottles-but-all plastic bottles are not pet bottles.

Oh no..that's not true...i agree with the comments of BK Chowla. What he has mentioned sums up my idea as well.

@ Neha: Please read under your disposable water bottle. It says (1) with a small PET or PETE written under it. The disposable water bottles are the same grade as Pearlpet water bottles.
I have not said that they are not food grade. Just that they are the same grade..
