Benefits of Properly Cleaning Your Water Bottle
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR WATER BOTTLE
Ideally, you should try to clean your drink bottle on a daily basis. It doesn’t take much – just adding soap and warm water inside the bottle, shake and rinse should do it. Leave it out to dry so it's ready for your next use. If you think your bottle needs a deeper clean, add vinegar and then fill up the rest of the bottle with water. Let that sit overnight and clean it out the next day.
If your lucky enough to have a dishwasher-safe bottle, break down all the parts included with your bottle and throw them in. It's that easy. Keep in mind, though, hand washing gentler on the bottle, as colors do not fade as fast.
WHEN IT’S TIME TO REPLACE YOUR WATER BOTTLE
No matter how carefully you look after your water bottle, it won’t last forever and there will come a time when it needs replacing. If your bottle’s seals are broken or not properly closed, if there is rusting, or if it’s starting to warp, it may be time to look into a new bottle.
