Is plastic or glass better for storage? I sometimes worry that my plastic storage containers aren’t that clean – some of them have white patches on them and some are a bit stained from tomato based sauces. I put them in the dishwasher – does this mean they come out clean or should I throw them out and replace with glass?

  • if you are washing in a dishwasher i wouldnt worry at all! its nice n hot and kills any germs. id also be opting for BPA free containers. :)

  • I use plastic because it can be replaced easy and I don’t really need to work when it drops and breaks, its easy to clean

  • i use vacuum sealed bags for alot of my storage. i use the plastic for freezing, if you are using them all the time i would probably replace them every couple of months.

  • I use plastic containers for sauces, and I end up having to wash them by hand, because for some reason they don’t wash properly in the dish washer. When I can’t get them clean by hand I throw them out and get new ones.

  • when my items start to discolour or not wash properly i re[place them
