I'm just trying to gain a consensus on Fun as to the use of either glass or acrylic drinking vessels. We currently use acrylic but would much prefer to drink from glass. Anyone any advice as to storage, safety etc whilst using glass?
Definitely glass! Used acrylic for years whilst caravanning, but really never liked it. I have found that bubble wrap envelopes are perfect, just slip each glass into one and job done. Then I have a plastic basket that fits onto a shelf in the kitchen and I pop all the mugs and glasses in that for travelling.
Glass and real crockery and proper knives and forks. Cookware is home stuff but the cheap stuff because it's thinner and lighter. plates go in a plate rack, everything else just put in the cupboard. The cupboard is lined with the non slip stuff from the pound shop.
In over 8 years tugging and moho I've only had one glass break on the move...
The kids do ALL the washing up, so it's polycarbonate stuff in the MH for us. However, if I was on a 'grown-ups' only trip, I'd definitely use glass.
The cocktail cabinet in our van has such a strong magnet - I find it hard (read nigh on impossible) to pull it open IN the 'open' position. I obviously have muscles like sparrows' kneecaps!
Drinking GLASSESS, China mugs, corelle plates.
We smashed a boxfull of mugs moving from overnighting at the ferry to driving onto it. Took a lovely chip out of the worktop too. Someone hadn't ensured the latch caught on the cupboard after breakfast
Looked like a Greek restaurant in the (then) caravan
We use these one for china beakers and one for wine glasses http://muggi.co.uk/
Denby china plates that travel inside cloth bags that were hanging around the house. Plenty clean tea towels too that pad out and get used.
