Okay, this is a little random but what the hell. Am I the only person who reuses Snapple bottles? I drink a lot of iced tea (a lot). I would say I drink a half-gallon to a gallon a day. I usually prefer unsweetened tea so it is cheapest for me to make my tea at home. When I do buy a Snapple at the store or something I make sure I save the bottle and cap. I rinse all the bottles out and keep them on my shelf until I make a bunch of tea. I make sure all the bottles are clean and when the tea is made I just pour it in the bottles and cap them. Then I put them in the fridge to cool. I like it because the bottle "pop" again when you open them and it produces less garbage. I can use the same bottles 8-15 times maybe longer. The only time I really need to replace a bottle is if the cap gets rusty or it breaks. I wish I could find cheap caps because the rust thing is much more common then breaking the bottles. Does anyone else do this? Also, I am real lax about cleanliness. Seriously. I just rinse the bottles and don't worry about it. Since I rarely have bottles sitting in the air for more than two days I have never had a problem. I suppose a worried person could put them in the dishwasher. I figure that there isn't much to feed bacteria and mold (since my tea is unsweet) and I am pouring almost boiling water into the bottles then sealing and cooling them right away. I probably wouldn't drink a bottle that didn't "pop" just in case but I have never had one that didn't seal. Anyway, this is just a little hippie-hint of the day for those unsweet tea drinkers. Reuse those bottles. The only people who hate this are my sisters. They stop in and grab a tea -- thinking it is sweetened because of the label and get upset when it isn't. They hate unsweet tea. I suppose you could make sweet tea or anything else like this. Just make sure you mix the sugar/honey/whatever before you pour it into the bottles. It would be impossible to get it right after the bottle was capped. You don't want it to spray everywhere and the bottle gets hot real fast.
