How to buy a reliable plastic water cup?

Choose PP material to avoid AS material; PP material has a number 5 at the bottom of the bottle

What should consumers pay attention to when buying children’s plastic water cups? Which is relatively safe? Mao Kai, an engineer at the Hardware Packaging Product Testing Center of Jiangsu Product Quality Supervision and Inspection Research Institute, suggested: Consumers go to regular stores, buy regular goods, ask for regular invoices, and try to buy products in large chain supermarkets or special maternal and child supplies stores.

Among the common children’s plastic drinking cups on the market, polypropylene (PP) is a relatively safe material (the bottom of the bottle is marked with a number 5). Except for polypropylene (PP), children’s plastic drinking cups of other materials are not recommended to be heated in a microwave oven. , Disinfection, to avoid the release of harmful substances to human health. Some children’s plastic drinking cups are made of polypropylene (PP), and parts such as lids and straws are made of other materials. Consumers should pay attention to them and identify them clearly when purchasing.

Since there are two samples of AS material this time, both samples are not up to standard. It is recommended to avoid this material when purchasing.

Then, how to identify PP material? According to Mao Kai, the plastic cup made of PP material is relatively not so transparent. However, there is little difference in appearance between unqualified and qualified plastic cups. The appearance can only be roughly judged, and the final choice must be based on the material on the label.

The test results found that the prices of the three samples that did not meet the standard were all in the range of 10-30 yuan. Does it mean that products in this range are more prone to problems? Mao Kai explained that it may be that the samples are in a relatively concentrated range of 10-30 yuan (28 in total). However, in general, you should pay more attention to the safety of the product when buying, not just considering the price factor.

In addition, experts specifically reminded: In addition to water, it is not recommended to use plastic drinking cups for long-term storage of carbonated drinks, milk and other foods.

Is stainless steel and glass necessarily better than plastic?

If each material does not meet the standard, it will be harmful to the human body

What do experts think about the rejection of plastic products by some parents, especially those born in the 80s and 90s? Is this a new “consumption misunderstanding”? Or is it true that glass and stainless steel are more reliable than plastic materials? Provincial Consumers Association experts said: It is undeniable that glass is indeed safer than plastic, because glass is made without chemical plasticizers; in terms of safety indicators, a glass is qualified as long as it meets the safety standard.
