I collect plastic silverware from fast food places and complie them togetehr for picnic baskets, coolers as well as keep in my car if needed. I wrpa them in a napkin to have it ready and even in a plastic bag from the Dollar Tree ($1) with pepper as I do not use salt! Very handy!

To store food, glass is probably a better choice. (There may be reasons to keep the plastic, you can decide.) Glass can be used in the dishwasher and microwave. When plastic is heated (in microwave or dishwasher) and then we eat from that plastic container, a "chemical" is released that can then be found in our bodies. The chemical is BPA.

I no longer put plastic in my dishwasher. Not even knives with rubber handles. I wash all plastic by hand. I microwave using glass and cover with waxed paper.
Disappointed as bags were wadded and jumbled inside box. Bags would not come out of box without ripping the entire box open, so I put them together as the other brand does and then folded the entire pile into a neat "roll" with the tops up for easy extraction. This line needs better QC! 24
