How To Sterilize Plastic Bottles For Makeup Tools?
Afternoon, I want to ask. So many women sterilize plastic skincare or make up bottles by boiling them in boiling water as a result of the plastic bottles being dented due to heat. My question is whether the bottle is still safe to use? Are the substances contained in the plastic helpless when filled with skincare products such as toner etc. and applied to the face? Then are there other alternatives to sterilizing plastic bottles for safer skincare? Please give instructions, thank you.

Sterilization is a step to eliminate germs that cause disease, through a heating process with a certain temperature and time. This method is carried out especially for medical devices, baby equipment, and other equipment that requires a high level of cleanliness.
Sterilization in make up containers or bottles is useful to minimize the development of germs in make up tools. The sterilization process in both makeup bottles and beverage bottles or baby food utensils, for example, has the same method, namely through heating, by means of an electric sterilizer using hot steam, boiling, or by microwave.
Germs easily breed at room temperature even up to 70 degrees celsius. Therefore, the sterilization system usually uses a minimum temperature of 100 degrees Celsius.
Bottles that have been boiled after being exposed to hot steam will generally not be comfortable to use and some types of bottles can release various harmful substances when passing high enough temperatures. Therefore, it is not recommended to use bottles that have been damaged.
Make sure to have good quality plastic bottles, without containing harmful chemicals such as BPA (Bisphenol A). Chemicals contained in plastic bottles may be able to react with chemicals from make up ingredients. But often the process will not cause short-term effects, but can cause long-term effects.
Until now, the process of sterilizing bottles and other tools generally goes through the heating process first. Therefore, choose a bottle that can withstand the heat so that it is not easily damaged during the sterilization process.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully helps
