If you don't want to buy a permanent bottle just use an empty wine bottle or something.
Is refilling plastic bottles actually dangerous? Watch

I refil cola bottles with tap water, they're tougher than the bottles that flat water comes in.
Anything water soluable in the plastic will have dissolved into the first contents they put into it in the factory... So it's too late you've already drunk some
I suppose you could brew up some bacteria if you leave the refilled bottle in a warm place for several days... So don't do that.

I've used a bottle for more than 6 months before and I'm still fine. (Only washing out with cold water between use when I could be bothered to)

Been doing it for as long as I remember. I have a bottle in my car that I have been refilling for almost a year now. I'm still alive and have never gotten ill from it, sooo.....

It may not be a too good idea to reuse a bottle constantly without washing it. If you don't, there will be bacteria etc accumulating and multiplying at the mouth of the bottle (sometimes it causes it to stink a bit). So if you don't wash it for a long time you could potentially get ill from it (probably not, never heard of that happening and the bacteria gets onto the bottle from your mouth in the first place).
After all, if you use a glass to only drink water from it, you still wash it once every while.
Also, if you constantly buy bottles to use for refilling, it could be more money efficient to just buy a bottle that's meant for that.Last edited by Nadile; 19-08-2013 at 12:12.
