The Ultimate Guide to Cleaning Your Reusable Water Bottle
Dec 29, 2022
If you're looking to keep your reusable water bottle in tip-top shape, listen up, because we've got the scoop on the best ways to wash it.
First things first, hot water and soap is a total game changer. Just fill up your bottle with some scalding hot H2O, add a little bit of dish soap, and use a bottle brush or dishcloth to scrub away any dirt or grime. Don't forget to rinse thoroughly, or you'll be sipping on soapy water (ew).
If you're feeling a little more adventurous, try mixing equal parts vinegar and baking soda to create a cleaning solution. Let it sit in your bottle for a few hours before rinsing, and boom - bacteria and germs are gone like magic. The vinegar will kill off any nasties, and the baking soda will help eliminate any odors.
For a quick and easy clean, bottle cleaning tablets are the way to go. Just drop one in your bottle, fill it with water, and let it do its thing. When you're ready to rinse, your bottle will be good as new.
If your bottle is dishwasher safe (lucky you!), toss it in the top rack and let the machine do the work. Just be sure to give it a good rinse before using it again.
Don't forget about the lid! It's just as important to clean the top of your bottle as the bottom. Use a bottle brush or dishcloth to scrub the inside of the lid, and make sure to rinse thoroughly.
After you're finished cleaning, it's crucial to dry your bottle properly. Air dying is the best way to dry your bottle. Avoid using towels or placing on mat as this method can cause bad odors. Use a Kuppy Drying Rack to air dry and you're all set.
And finally, make sure to clean your bottle regularly. Aim to wash it at least once a week, or more frequently if you use it all the time. By following these simple steps, you'll have a sparkling clean bottle that's ready for all your hydration needs. Happy sipping!
