Which is better, glass or plastic water bottle?

- Feb 19, 2019-

Generally, boiling water in a glass water bottle is better than in a plastic water bottle. Glass water bottles are relatively stable, while plastic water bottles are prone to odor when boiled water is filled.


Glass water bottle does not contain organic chemicals in the process of firing. When people drink water or other drinks with glass water bottle, they do not need to worry about the chemical substances will be drunk into their stomach. Moreover, the glass surface is smooth and easy to clean. Bacteria and dirt are not easy to breed on the wall of the glass. However, glass water bottle can be purchased thicker, too thin, some because of the principle of thermal expansion and contraction, the bottle in a relatively cold situation, suddenly poured into the boiling water, may burst. Such water bottles need to be poured in a little before pouring boiling water, so that the wholebottle is preheated, and then poured into boiling water, so as to reduce the glass water bottle because the boiling water bursts.


Plastic water bottles don't burst as easily as glass water bottle when poured into hot water. But plasticizers are often added to plastics, which contain some toxic chemicals. When hot water or boiling water is filled in plastic water bottles, toxic chemicals are easily diluted into water, and the internal micro-structure of plastics has many holes, which hide dirt, and bacteria can easily breed if it is not cleaned properly. Therefore, when choosing plastic water bottle, it is necessary to choose water bottles made of edible grade plastics that meet the national standards. Recommended use of PP or TRITAN plastic water bottles.
