Very Tough Issue: Bpa is a hot topic, nowadays. Microwaving the plastic seems to worsen the problem. Unfortunately, washing the plastic is just as bad. Even more unfortunately, bpa-free plastic, which you can buy, seems to be just as bad or worse! (http://healthland.Time.Com/2011/03/08/study-even-bpa-free-plastics-leach-endrocrine-disrupting-chemicals/) consider microwaving on glass?
