Quick question about reusing plastics

internetchickinternetchick Posts: 6,191Registered Users
I have some heavy duty plastic forks and spoons left over from my niece's birthday party. I ran them through the dishwasher to clean them, and am wondering if they would be safe to reuse. I believe you can't reuse plastic bags, is it the same for plastic silverware? I don't want to save them if they will harbor bacteria. I just don't like the idea of throwing them away if I don't have to.

    I don't see a problem with reusing them, especially since you ran them through the dishwasher.

    I re-use the heavy ones. I know lots of people who do. None of us have died yet.

    I reuse them often. I don't think you should have a problem.

    My son has those heavy duty plastic utencils that are in animal shapes and stuff, and I ran them through the dishwasher all the time...he seems to be fine.

    Throw them away and just take some from your local fast-food joint. :D

    Yup, I'd reuse
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or hump it.....Piss on it and walk away.

    Please. My dad's side of the family has been using the same plasticware for our Thanksgiving family reunion since the '70s. I kid you not. My Aunt Myrtle demands that we NOT throw it away; we put it in the sink and she washes it, and WALLAH! There it is again next year.

    My cousins and I call it "the family plastic" and we just can't wait to see who inherits it... :lol:
