washing water bottles

Lately, with my son having so many sports events to go to, I've been forgetting his reusable water bottle and having to stop and buy bottled water.  I hate to add to plastic usage.  I do recycle, but it still seems like a waste of money for both the water and the bottle to throw in the trash. So...I've been washing them in warm soapy water and reusing them.  I know that it may be harmful to run them through a dishwasher with high heat, due to the plastic seeping toxins, but I figure, warm soap can't hurt!  I love reusing stuff, even tiny steps to save money and our earth make me feel good!

Plus, my three year old doesn't spill with this kind of lid!!
