You know the ones with a little rubber strip right round the inside of the lid which fits inside a sort of ridge in the lid (? cliplock or something). Do you ever take these rubber bits out to get right inside the ridges on the lid - I feel this is something I should do but perhaps this is a bit too anal <fears of lurking bacteria emoticon>
Well, we have survived this far without me removing these for washing so it's probably not vital. It's just someone at work (hospital) mentioned one lunchtime "some of the gunk that you get under the seals in the lid". I was all attention as of course medics are experts on all things bacteria-related and started prising them out - it does feel quite satisfying to get into all the "bits" but it's a faff getting them back in and I haven't actually come across any bits of black fluffy mould or anything. Just wondered if anyone else actually does this.
