Today at work I was talking to one of the girls about my reusable plastic bottle being very stained from my sugarfree drink mixes and how I just couldn't get it out. I said that maybe I would soak it in bleach water for a bit. She said, " You know Honey, you are supposed to use bleach on plastic." I have never heard this before. Why? Bleach comes in plastic bottles for goodness sake. What's the deal? Can I use bleach to get the grotty bits out or not?
