hey! that's uptown. folks who are bugged by the idea of washing disposable eatlery would freak out, indeed, over people who lay kleenex out to dry so it can be used again.

Best Answer

Depends; I have been known to wash and reuse the heavy duty forks and knives for picnics and camping. But it is a matter of adding them to the dishwasher with all of the regular dishes etc. <br />
<br />
Since I am already running the dishwasher I don't see why to toss them out if they are still good. Plates- cups etc get tossed after being used.

I sometimes rinse off paper plates if I know I might want to use it later in the same day instead of getting a new one and my mom drinks those 1 liter calorie free flavored waters and I rince out the bottle and fill them with ice tea mix, freeze them and take them to work then when Im done they go in the pastic recycle bin at work cause we use alot of paper, pastic and cardbord for shipping cartons and packing material, once a week we take a truck load to be recycled.

I will do this with bottles like that on occasion. Fill half with water and lay on its side in freezer. Fill the rest with water and take it with you on a hot day.

I've got about half a dozen plastic "disposable" small plates (suitable for sandwiches, snacks) which I inherited from my mother 10 years ago. She'd used them and washed them for years and I even put them through my dishwasher - I just like them<br />
<br />
Wouldn't re-wash cups or cutlry though - in fact only use them in fast food places when I've no choice !
