Are salt/pepper shakers aquarium safe?

I would love to add these: http://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Tardis-...keywords=Dalek to my aquarium. I know mugs are safe, so I think salt and pepper shakers should be too. Thanks in advance.

Rule of thumb is that if they are food grade and have never been in contact with soap, they are aquarium safe. I like the ornaments btw!

I've got S&P shakers, dishes, all sorts of food-grade non-aquarium items in my tanks, and have never had a problem. :)

You should be safe. :)

I love those!!! I do believe that they should be fine. Rinse them off really well before you put them in the tank.

Thanks everyone! I am obsessed with doctor who, so I was thinking about a doctor who themed tank. If you have any suggestions that would be great. I will probably use blue gravel, the pepper shakers, and maybe a plant that looks sort of alien. The background will be the opening when the tardis is traveling through space.
