    I'm not sure if you're addressing me or the OP, but in my case we were being pulled over by the police. I would guess that ignoring them would be against the law, even in Ireland.

    I use good quality plastic bottles. They don't taste like plastic but I use mouthwash (the really cheap, harsh, alcohol-y ones) to clean them. Never have any probs.
