    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?

    Hate acrylic so we always use glass. I have put pipe insulation collars around ours so they don't rattle and there is a bit of protection against breakage.

    We also have pottery plates and mugs. :)

    I have glass for my wine, hubby quite happy with acrylic for wine and straight from the can or bottle for beer, I usually pour my lager into an acrylic glass. Pottery mugs but plastic plates.

    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. (y)

    Glass, and it has to be the correct glass for what am drinking. Wrapped in the odd socks that we keep finding in the washing machine.

    These are the things I use....cheap as chips off eBay! image.jpg
    To wrap my glasses in, not to drink out of, obviously. Saw Tootles was about and thought I should add that!

    Glass, do not wrap and never broke one in transit, several gave up their lives when being used.

    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...

    Glass for us too, if you buy your wine glasses in, say, a box of four then do as we do and keep them in the box while traveling. (y)
