I need to premise this post with one very specific statement...I do not drink alcohol in any shape or form. Golly, we don't even use Dijon mustard since it is made with white wine. It's a decision my husband and i made together when we got married.
So with that, I do want to tell you about something I think is really, really neat from Cassani, Vino Mio Foldable Wine Bottles. I think these are the neatest things to have around for a lot of reasons.
The bottles are made to be reusable for a long time. They are sold in a set of two and each one holds a fifth of a gallon, or 750 ml. Each one completely collapses flat except right up at the cap. They are easy to store and super easy to use. The mouth of the bottles are wide and fairly easy to fill. The company says you don't need a funnel, I still like to use one myself though. Personal preference. They can hold all kinds of beverages, which is nice. And with having two bottles, you can take several along with you.
They clean up really easily. You can place them in soapy water, swish the soapy water around inside them and rinse well. I place them over the handle of a wooden spoon to let the air get inside as they dry. So far, they have cleaned up well and have been easy to pack away when we were done with them.
What's really neat about these foldable wine bottles is that they are leak proof and obviously shatterproof. Not being breakable is a pretty important thing. There are many public places where glass or other breakable materials are not allowed, like beaches, public parks, concerts, festivals, and more. So having something you can take along with you that won't break is very handy and convenient! They also help cut down on the weight of things you have to carry, like in a cooler or backpack. Glass can add a lot of weight.
There are a few things you need to be careful about when using these. You don't want to squeeze them as you open them up or as you pour. The first few times pouring from them you might make a bit of a mess until you get the hang of it. Another things is to never fill with anything carbonated. This could cause a serious mess as you open them up. And, they don't stand up as well as a bottle would, although they do stand up on their own when full. You need to make sure they can be set upright in a place that they won't tip over easily when left open or that you put the cap on tight if closed so they don't leak.
One more thing you need to know is that the company offers a 100%hassle-free lifetime moneyback guarantee if you are not fully satisfied. That's a great promise from Cassini.
