Tip of the Week – Hand Wash Plastics

tupperwareWe all love the dishwasher, it’s easy & super convenient for all of us on the go. But when it comes to plastic tupperware, you need to dodge that dishwasher and hand wash plastic items instead. That’s because hot water & automatic dishwasher detergents break down plastics and increase chemical leaching. The best thing to do is wash all those plastic items by hand with a sponge that won’t scratch them.

    But i don’t appreciate hand wash plastics which produced by P.R.C.
    I hate them, they contains many cancerogenic materials.

    I like to wash my stuff 3 or 4 times in the dishwasher until I am sure they clean. Then I leave the water running all over the house because I like the sound of running water.

    I like this article. Biodegradable tableware is another solution to prevent pollusion and it can save the water too. For more information, please visit: http://www.ecoproco.us
