This week’s Do One Thing comes courtesy of my friends who just visited and have small children. I never really thought about it before, but they do not wash their kids’ plastic cups in the dishwasher, as the heat could make the plastic leech toxic chemicals. I don’t have a dishwasher (well, not one that isn’t named David, anyway) so all my dishes are washed by hand, including the 3 small plastic juice cups I have had forever. But now I will always remember that plastic cups shouldn’t be washed in hot water in the dishwasher – especially the kids’ cups!
