Health care products bottles can be seen everywhere in our lives and are closely related to our lives. The following is an introduction on how to distinguish between good quality and bad quality:

1: PET polyethylene terephthalate

Common mineral water bottles, carbonated Medical Grade Bottles, etc. Heat-resistant to 70°C, it is easy to deform, and some harmful substances are melted out. No. 1 plastic product may release carcinogen DEHP after 10 months of use. Do not put in the car to bask in the sun; do not store alcohol, oil, etc.

2: HDPE high density polyethylene

Common white medicine bottles, cleaning supplies, and bath products. Don't use it as a water cup or as a storage container for other items. If the cleaning is not thorough, do not recycle.

3: PVC polyvinyl chloride

Common raincoats, building materials, plastic films, plastic boxes, etc. It has excellent plasticity and low price, so it is widely used and can only heat up to 81℃. It is easy to produce bad substances at high temperature, and it is rarely used for food packaging. Difficult to clean and easy to remain, do not recycle. Do not buy if it contains drinks.

4: PE polyethylene

Common cling film, plastic film, etc. Harmful substances are produced at high temperatures, and toxic substances enter the human body with food, which may cause diseases such as breast cancer and birth defects of newborns. Do not put the plastic wrap into the microwave oven.

5: PP polypropylene

Common soy milk bottles, yogurt bottles, juice drink bottles, microwave lunch boxes. With a melting point of 167°C, it is the only plastic box that can be put in a microwave oven and can be reused after careful cleaning. It should be noted that some microwave lunch boxes, the box body is made of No. 5 PP, but the lid is made of No. 1 PE. Because PE cannot withstand high temperatures, it cannot be placed in the microwave together with the box.

6: PS polystyrene

Common bowls of instant noodle boxes and fast food boxes. Do not put it in a microwave oven to avoid the release of chemicals due to high temperature. After loading acid (such as orange juice) and alkaline substances, carcinogens will be decomposed. Avoid using fast food boxes to pack hot food. Don't use the microwave to cook instant noodles in a bowl.

7: PC other types

Common kettles, space cups, and milk bottles. Department stores often use water cups of this kind as gifts. It is easy to release the toxic substance bisphenol A, which is harmful to the human body. Do not heat it when using it and do not expose it to direct sunlight.
