PETE bottles: How can I tell which are which?
I reuse certain plastic bottles to store food products and water. Located on the bottom of the bottle is a triangular symbol. The letters "PETE" are imprinted underneath the triangle. I think this labeling indicates the plastic is less porous than other types of plastic. It keeps out oxygen better.
