When did Solo come out with red cups?

The wax-coated cups were added to its lineup in the 1950s, as fountain sodas gained popularity. In the 1970s, Hulseman's son, Robert Leo Hulseman, came up with the now-ubiquitous red Solo cup. The red Solo cups are made of thick, molded polystyrene.

Which Solo cups are more popular: the red or blue variety?

The red Solo cup outsells the blue Solo cup along with any other color by a wide margin. In fact, the red Solo cup is so relevant and so much a part of our American culture that it even has its own song called “Red Solo Cup” thanks to country singer Toby Keith.

What do the rings on a Solo cup mean?

There have been rumors circulating on social media that the lines on a Solo cup indicate proper sizes for specific alcoholic drinks that are most common. For instance, the line closest to the bottom of the cup holds 1 perfect ounce of liquor. The line on the middle of the cup measures a perfect 5-ounce glass of wine. The line above the middle line which would be the lowest of all the top lines is where 12 ounces of beer would stop at. The Solo Cup company responded on its Facebook page that this was never their intention. Hey, if it works, it works.

Can you heat up red Solo cups?

No. Although colored plastic party cups are pretty durable, they not meant for hot beverages nor are they safe to use to heat up a liquid in the microwave. Besides burning your hand since the cups are not heat resistant, the plastic that they are manufactured with will get pliable and weak, possibly even melting into your food. For safety always read the manufacturer recommended usages on all products.

Are red Solo cups reusable?

Although marketed as a disposable plastic cup, Solo plastic party cups are so durable and strong that they can be used again. Be sure to wash them by hand, though, because the plastic used to manufacture the cups are not resistant to the high temperatures of a dishwasher and could melt causing the plastic to leech into foods.
