Explanation Of The Packaging Bottle Number Code?
want to ask about the bottle and the plastic code. From what I read the packaging code 1 on the bottle is recommended for 1x usage and 2 is recommended only a few times. I want to ask for a bottle or packaging of shares in a jar / travel kit coded number 1/2 if used for products such as shampoo, soap or perfume can also change the content of particles and cause danger? Because I have a number of used packages in bottle / jar that look good, I want to use them again. Is it better to just throw it away?
Thank you for the question.
In each bottle there is a code that reflects the ingredients of the bottle. From this code, it can be known what safe bottles are used for, how many times they are used, and what kind of treatment they are good for.
Code 1 on the bottle indicates that the bottle is made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). This material can be used to store food or drinks, soda, mouthwash, and sauce. Meanwhile, the coded 2 bottle indicates that the bottle is made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) so it is safe to store food, drinks, shampoo, conditioner, detergents, cleaners, motor oil, bleach, and so on.
Bottle with code 1 is not appropriate to be used more than once, even if it is to store shampoo, soap or perfume as you planned. It is feared, the use of bottles like this will make the particles of shampoo, soap and perfume that is inserted to be changed, and the risk of disturbing your health. It's safer, if you really want to reuse a bottle for that substance, you use a coded 2 bottle, of course, after cleaning it beforehand.
Hope this helps ...
