      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

READ if you use Nalgenes

Recommended Posts

Nobody but right wingers should use any plastic containers while heating any food, even the plastic oven wrap on many frozen food dishes.

If you are worried about ingesting compounds that mimic estrogen, I suggest that you lay off of soy, flaxseed, and other staples of the right-wing diet...

I read about this a few years ago. It's the hard nalgenes with the #7 in the recycle triangle that they're referring to. The softer white ones aren't #7 though.

Saran Wrap is a PVC film plasticized with phthalate esters. Phthalates also act like estrogen mimetics. Actually it's safe as long as the film does not contact the food while it is being heated.

Saran wrap can also be used to make a condom in a pinch.

 

If you're a Saran Wrap expert, it can be used also as a diaphragm.

 

sorry, I don't have a diagram for the diaphragm.

ditto what CBS said about pH. this means you shouldn't bleach your nalgene either.

 

however, this is not something to get your hair mussed about. if you wash correctly, and refrain from drinking that year-old nalgene water, you'll be A-OK even if you're pregnant. leaching takes time, and if you refill your bottle with fresh water and drink it within a reasonable time (don't really have an exact answer, probably hours or days) then the concentration won't be high enough to worry about.

if you're not prego, there has been zero ill effects documented as far as I know.
