Why not put smirnoff ice in plastic bottles or canS?

f the bottle is open, the dry ice will simply sublime and exit the container, likely producing a cloud of condensed water vapor. However, if the bottle is sealed, the gas produced by the dry ice that sublimes will not be able to escape. Thus, the pressure in the bottle will increase, possibly resulting in a violent 'explosion'

Just as Smirnoff would be when hot or cold therefore glasss would be the most appropriate medium to use.
