2. Studies have found that using disposable printed paper coffee cups to hold alcohol with a concentration of more than 45% for more than 2 hours will greatly increase the content of chemical substances in the wine. Moreover, alcohol may also dissolve some components in the ink on the surface of the paper cup, which is unhealthy.
