Protect Your Unbreakable Drinkware from DEET Damage

Protect Your Unbreakable Drinkware from DEET Damage

At D-STILL, we take pride in offering top-quality unbreakable plastic drinkware that combines durability with elegance. However, it's important to be aware that certain substances, such as DEET, can negatively impact the longevity and appearance of our polycarbonate products.

Mosquito Repellents Containing DEET

DEET, a common active ingredient in many mosquito repellents, is known to react with various types of plastics, including polycarbonate. This reaction can lead to significant damage, resulting in discolouration, a hazy appearance, or even cracks in the plastic. Such cosmetic and structural damage can compromise the overall quality and aesthetics of your drinkware, making it less enjoyable to use.

To ensure the longevity and pristine condition of your unbreakable drinkware, we advise you to exercise caution when using mosquito repellents around these items. Here are a few tips to help maintain the integrity of your polycarbonate drinkware:

Check Repellent Ingredients: Before applying any insect repellent, check the label for DEET. If DEET is listed, keep your drinkware at a safe distance.

Use DEET-Free Alternatives: Consider using mosquito repellents that do not contain DEET. There are many effective alternatives available that are less likely to cause damage to plastics.

Wash After Exposure: If your drinkware does come into contact with DEET, wash it immediately with warm soapy water to minimise any potential damage.

Store Safely: When not in use, store your drinkware in a location where it is unlikely to come into contact with insect repellents or other chemicals.

By taking these precautions, you can help preserve the beauty and functionality of your D-STILL unbreakable plastic drinkware for years to come.
