If the container is full or nearly full, yes! Water and other liquids expand when frozen, and this can cause a plastic container to burst.

Ice doesn't go bad. However, it can absorb odors in the freezer and taste stale. To avoid this, you can put your ice in Tupperware or plastic containers.

At wal mart they are good quality and cheap, target is just expensive but you can get it there, at Walgreen's it's not to bad ethier.

It isn't bad to freeze them, unless you fill them up too high; water expands when it freezes, so just be sure to leave enough room towards the top to prevent the bottle from cracking open.

There is a compound by that name that was identified by national health intersts as a possible carcinogen. It was found in many, many plastic drinking and food containers in America. I do not know if the material was found in other countries. By the way I am an "old" person in California, U.S.A. The material has been banned from use or sales in any containers sold for people use in the United States. I think that the use of those containers in plastic containers that are used for heating in microwave ovens was the "Bad" issue. I nevcer trusted or used plastic for eating or drinking anyway. Taste issues.

Basically nothing bad happens it just doesn't freeze properly!

Is it bad for you to reuse a plastic bottle

Many people do, so it's quite safe. However we should all try to reduce our usage of disposable plastic so re-usable boxes would be better.

A bad freeze plug will leak coolant and cause the engine to overheat.

Warm water and soap. First, shake vigorously and empty. Do it again, leave it a few hours, rinse, and air dry 24 hours.

It is a tragic fact the Atlantic has large amounts of plastic contamination which is cluttering up the ocean and causing problems with sea life and marine birds. The plastic containers come in all shapes and sizes take practically forever to biodegrade due to their chemical makeup.

Yes. When food is cooked and left out for more than 2 hours at room temperature, bacteria can multiply quickly. Most bacteria grow undetected because they don't produce a bad odor or change the color or texture of the food. Pop it in the fridge and it'll last for about 5-6 days or so. If you plan on eating it within 6 months, I recommend that you freeze your cooked pumpkin in sealable freezer-weight plastic bags or in tightly sealed plastic containers.

A plastic cup is a bad insulator because it doesn't allow electricity to pass through.

If you try to freeze water, juice or other liquids in a closed plastic container without leaving room for expansion, your container will crack or burst. I fill plastic bottles or jugs with liquid, leaving plenty of room at the top for expansion. Once the liquid is frozen, then you can safely tighten the lid and then when you want to take it off use warm water to wash it then take it off.The reason why it's a bad idea to freeze water in a sealed plastic container is because the container can break. I would say if the water bottle is full and you freeze it then burst open and then it will be an even bigger mess then if you just started with a half full bottle. Which works just as well.Leave at least a 1/4 of the plastic without water because water expands.Other notes:Jugs of ice keep the freezer from having to work as hard to cool the compartment, assuming you don't keep your freezer space full of food. In the event of a power outage the chunks of ice can help prevent the loss of your food for a little longer. It is NOT indefinite, but it does help for brief periods of time. My freezer lasted two days during a summer hurricane.There is a myth going around that freezing water in a plastic container causes the plastic to release dioxin, and thereby causes breast cancer. This is not true.
