  Custom printed plastic cups are commonly used by many friends, and some friends who want a hot drink don't know if plastic cups can be put in the microwave. In fact, most of the plastic cups can not be put into the microwave oven, only PP (polypropylene) plastic cups can be put into the microwave oven, and pay attention to the PE material of the lid removed before putting in. From a scientific point of view, plastic water cups are not recommended to be heated because they can release harmful substances and are prone to bacterial growth, so it is recommended to use microwave containers.

  Can custom printed plastic cups be heated?
  The microwave oven is a common household appliance, many people especially like to drink hot milk and juice, so they will want to ask, can the plastic cup in the microwave? Be aware that not all plastic cups can be microwaved.
  Ordinary plastic especially with color plastic cup in high temperature will decompose toxic substances, harm human health, can be put into the plastic cup in the microwave oven only PP material, that is, no. 5 polypropylene, it can withstand 200 ℃ high temperature, can be heated with microwave oven, but do not put into the oven. Of course, it would be nice to have a dedicated microwave oven to heat your utensils.
  Read the triangle on the bottom or side of the plastic cup and the number before deciding whether or not to microwave it. If the number is 5, microwave it and leave the rest behind. Another point to note is that some microwave lunch boxes, the box body is indeed no. 5 PP, but the lid is no. 1 PE, because PE does not tolerate high temperature, so it can not be put into the microwave together with the box body. To be on the safe side, remove the lid from the glass before putting it in the microwave.
  The dangers of heating plastic cups
  While the surface of the plastic looks smooth, it actually has a lot of voids that can harbor dirt. In the office, most of the cleaning of the cup is only with water, the cup can not be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Plastic cups are susceptible to bacteria. Affected by static electricity from computers and cabinets, plastic cups absorb more dust, bacteria and germs, which may affect your health over time.
  A good suggestion is the working personnel that uses plastic water cup had better match a cover to the cup, and do not stand near the electric equipment such as computer, still should maintain indoor air current at ordinary times, open a window to ventilate, let dust go with wind. The biggest problem with large plastic bottles is the space cup, which many people make tea in and is hot enough to release bisphenol A. "Actually the space cup should be concerned as well. It's dangerous." As for drinking buckets, mineral water buckets, mineral water bottles and other plastic products used at room temperature, do not worry too much. These drinking water bottles generally do not need to use bisphenol A, and most of them are used at room temperature. Water bottles that are too clear should also be careful, as they may also contain BPA.
  Some people may still be using custom printed plastic cups, but with this new "green" theme, a better suggestion is to use biodegradable plastic or paper cups.
