Hi Florence,

 Thank you for your question.

 You can use the items you gave examples of since they are food-grade. However, some containers may not store foods to the best quality. I'd encourage you to read some tips on freezing from the National Center for Home Food Preservation.



Please reach out if you have additional questions.
