It's not rubber. The material is TPE. TPE is polyester based and can be made flexible. It's not just rubber.

I guess the problem with TPE is that it is porous. For this reason, we don't recommend TPE for cats as it could make them a little prone to urinary tract infections. The reason for this is that TPE holds moisture, causing it to be more prone to bacterial and fungus growth.

I had a couple of cats that had UTI's. I had a cat who was in the shelter that had to have his bladder drned twice. He was a rescue cat, so I wasn't given much info on him. But he was an indoor cat who had the shelter. I had another cat who was kept outside, but in a house. I'm not sure if she had a UTI, but she didn't poop the rest of the week. I think the shelter cat, when they were given shots, got a bad shot and was very ill.

The vet suggested putting him on anti-biotics. TPE is a better option. But it's a bit harder to clean up. I was lucky and could find a local pet store with it in stock, but most likely will not be able to find the stuff in other areas.

The same problem as with any polypropylene items... I use them and they keep things very well, especially my kitty litter contners. I use the plastic bags that they come in as well as the plastic lids. But, they can keep things a bit moist, so I make sure to change the bags and lids every week. I also use the bag liners and put them in a separate bag, then put the clean bags back in their own bag in the freezer until I need them. I don't wash them, just clean them up, put in a bag and freeze agn.

I'll wash the items in a dishwasher on the top rack, no hot water or soap and only a little rinse, and they come out very clean. Of course, it's still important to wash your hands afterwards.

I like the idea of not wasting resources if I can help it. I also like the idea of not getting plastic off my hands and into the landfills. But I guess it is also not practical to wash items like that dly. I think there must be a happy medium that we can all work out. I will just wash my items weekly, like I do everything else, and not waste resources unless absolutely necessary.

I use a washer, dryer and dishwasher. I try to wash all my plastics after use as I hate to think of them going into the trash where they will just keep getting crushed until they reach the end of their lives. They are recyclable of course and I have had good success with the local recycling/plastic recycling co-op that delivers them for free to my house. However, it's a pn to be without washing machines and so if it's something I would keep in the house I use the regular laundry. I'm glad you addressed this issue. Thanks for the tips.

Re: Wash clothing in cold water and hang to dry. The cold and water-repelling properties of polyester prevent microbes from growing and multiply.

I've never had a problem with that. Maybe they would work if you put it in a wash that is very cold, but what if you put it in a wash that is not super cold? I don't like the idea of washing it in cold water if it can't be washed in cold water.

I use cold water on my sheets and my underwear only. I don't see the point in using cold water on anything else. Maybe it depends on what I'm washing but I haven't had any problems with my laundry.

I see this from a "health" standpoint and a "healthier environment" standpoint. My sister-in-law used to own her own laundry service and I think if you are a small business owner you can get a better rate for your wash. Our family used their services for awhile and found them to be great.

My husband and I use cold water because it just seems cleaner and healthier. I don't have the problem with some fabrics absorbing the cold water, but even if they do, as long as it is the cold water that causes the problem it is not a problem for me.

If I were going to wash a load of clothing in the washing machine, I would put the cold water on it.

I use cold water on all of my laundry, except during summer months when it's really hot. Otherwise, I'll run the hot water. It's nice to have that cold water, too. If you use a washing machine, you can get by without hot water if you are smart about it.

I have a deep-freeze (a cooler) which I put the laundry in and it stays at the right temperature (for at least a week). You might not need a deep-freeze if your climate is cooler in winter but cooler in summer. You should just have to put your clothes in the laundry basket once a week.

Also, do you know what kind of dryer you have? Some have high energy consumption and may not be good for the environment.

What I've read here, on other threads, etc, I can't say I have any need for this, so I'm not going to pay for the dryer. I think my old dry
