I use them and and have had no problems. Others here on this site use them as well...just keep the food rotated and dated and you should be ok.

yep, I am one of the others that uses them as well. In fact I store a heck of a lot more than just beans and rice in them and have been for years. I prefer the 3 liter bottles though due to the larger bottle opening. This makes them easier to fill especially with the larger items like beans and dried Okra etc...

I store all my dry food in food grade 5 gallon buckets. They hold a decent amount of goods, stack very neatly and have a hundred uses when they are empty.

Hi You can store wheat, beans, and rice in your own home in the plastic soda.
usway. Welcome to the forum! I see your first two posts here, dealing with food storage (in an 8yo thread). I'm sure if you search around, you'll find a ton of newer and more informative content on food storage. Again, welcome, and we look forward to your participation here! :)

About the only thing I wouldn't suggest for long term storage is plasitic milk or water bottles. The plastic has a tendency to break down over time. I know, I've tried it.

Inceptor beat me too it. I'd swap out the old bottle for new every 2 years or so given that some plastics are designed break down. I don't use bottles for storage but I do fill them up 85 percent with H20 and store some in my chest freezer just in case there is a power outage to keep the fridges and freezer cool.

Godspeed

Doesn't matter, the topic is still relevant. I've seen a number of threads resurrected because the are still of use and you can see easily scroll back to see other responses. Some of those previous responses are still good ideas.
