Can i re-use polystyrene peri dishes?
    #2474113 - 03/25/04 08:38 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Can i re-use polystyrene peri dishes? I bought 25 off ebay and id liek to re-use them if i could. The pyrex ones arent too expensive but id rather get the most use of of what ive got. Will the plates melt/distort in boiling water?

google search

It won't melt at boiling temps.
I reuse my plates but I don't boil just soak in bleach solution then let dry, when I want to use them again a quick rinse with water and then swiped with isopropyl seems to work just fine.

peace - @cro
