Starting a sourdough starter: plastic container ok?

The baking books I have all say to use a non-metallic container such as ceramic or glass to make and store a sourdough starter.
Is plastic ok?

  1. I once stored sourdough starter in a commercial plastic gallon salad dressing container because it had a handle and wide mouth. I had no problems with it.

      With Cheryl. I've used much-used yogurt tubs with no problems.
