I've just spent the day at a friend's house and every time her husband had a drink from the fridge, it was straight out of the bottle or carton, instead of pouring the drink into a glass/cup.  He then put the bottle/carton back into the fridge, all ready for the next person (me!) to enjoy.

My friend told me she's asked him politely to stop doing it, has demanded he stopped, poured drinks into jugs (he slurps straight from the jug), and even handed him a clean glass as he's reaching into the fridge.  He says he doesn't want to create more washing up.

Drives her crazy, and I must say, I refused a drink after he'd wrapped his lips around the ottle I was waiting for a drink from (in a glass!)

Does it bother you?

Dh and I will drink from the bottle but we share that bottle with no one except the kids. I would never give a guest a drink from a bottle that has been drunk from directly.

To me it is no different than sharing a 600ml drink with your immediate family. Bt you wouldn't share it with anyone else.

The only reason one "shares" a carton is when one is playing "Hills Hoist Roulette"!

We drink out of the bottle, but NEVER would I offer said bottle to a guest. Just....no.

I saw my husband do it once and cracked it.   He was finishing the bottle but, what does he do when
im not watching?

I believe I may have threatened divorce if he ever did it again. Im with OP -  it's discusting.

Drinking out of the bottle is my preferred method of cold drink consumption. But never ever if guests are coming over - new, clean bottles of drink for guests only.

I drink out of the bottle - when its my own bottle and not being shared with anyone else. (eg my water bottle at work)


I wouldnt mind someone finishing off shared bottle or carton straight from bottle/carton either - nobody is going to drink out of it after you so cant see problem with that.


But not from bottles/cartons that others will use after you.

Finishing the bottle, yes.

Drinking from a recently opened or half full bottle, absolutely not.

Its not the same as sharing a 600ml bottle - it goes back in the fridge and grows stuff.  How am I to know if a guest comes over if it is contaminated with his backwash in it or not.

DH and i do it with ONE water bottle in the fridge. The people that are over most often know which one is ours lol and they get the other, people that aren't over very often don't have that level of comfort (getting their own drinks) so i pour for them.

This.  I also drink stuff that my family hate, like tomato juice.  I drink that straight from the bottle, if I'm not making a bloody or virgin Mary.

Yes - it bothers me. Our communal cartons of milk, juice, softdrink etc, we offer and use when guests come over so NO! A big no-no from me.

I do it. The kids do it. I don't care. lol

We don't have friends though. wink.gif

If we do have a rare guest we always buy new juice, milk, etc.

I don't care if I drink from the same bottle as my family, but I would not be so keen at someone elses house.

Of course not!            Well.....................not if anyone was looking!

That was one of the awesome things about living on my own - I could drink milk straight from the carton!

For interest's sake there is no 'backwash' if you do it right... it is the milk equivalent of the 'layback'... you pour from a height straight down your throat!

Oh that's gross. I busted DH doing this a few times - he didn't do it again (that I know of) unless he is finishing the bottle. I have loosened up about it though. Actually, I am drinking out of a bottle right now LOL. Its guava juice, no one else in the household drinks it and there's only a little left so no chance it will be offered to any visitors as we're not expecting any in the next few days. If we did have a visitor I'd NEVER knowingly offer them something someone had drunk from directly, I'd open a new one.

Others especially guests, no way that is gross!

DP only drinks straight from the bottle if he buys a big bottle of drink at work then brings it home, but I always know which is his from work, or if he's finishing off a bottle. DD also asks to drink the last mouthful or so out of the bottle if her cup is too full. She has never ever tried to do it any other time.

My step dad on the other hand, does it constantly and it drives me mad because he doesn't care who's or what drink it is, he will have it. I purposely buy drinks just for him to drink out of when he visits and I point out what is his and not to touch anything else and if he does he replaces it. Thankfully he doesn't visit often.

As with other PP's, I only do it if I am finishing the bottle (as in a large softdrink bottle).

We don't share drinks in this house.  XH used to with my DS, and then we had 3 instances of gastro go tearing through the household as a result, and I put my foot down and insisted we all have our own water bottles  original.gif

I am exactly the same! A nice cold beverage tastes far better coming from the bottle! Especially milk. I would never give a guest something that had been drank directly from the bottle.

We drink straight out of the bottle, for softdrink, flavoured milk or occasionally juice.  But we wouldn't offer that bottle for guests, I'd open a new one.
We normally don't share the bottle with each other either as we like different drinks.

Being the only one in the house with DS, I do sometimes drink out of the bottle when in a rush. But never ever in front of DS as I know its a bad habit and I dont want him to copy me.

I will not ever offer a drink to anyone after drinking out of the  bottle though.

My ex used to drink out of the bottle ALL THE  TIME and it drove me nuts. Then he would throw the bottle in the bin when it was half empty because it was all "back wash" as he called it.
Absolutely disgusting. Luckily I dont drink soft drink and we also had our own milk. Him full cream and me lite.
