You’ve bought your stainless fridge bottle online because you know how much plastic is strangling our planet; or you respect your body and health too much to absorb any more toxicity from plastic; colors of your bottle or you simply prefer the taste of fresh drinks versus that lingering plastic aftertaste. Whatever your reasons you have made the right choice!
If you have a brand new bottle and are excited to take your first slurp make sure to wash all parts with warm soapy water, rinse well, fill it with your favorite drink and enjoy.
If you are a water drinker a regular brush round the inside with water will be sufficient to keep your bottle fresh most of the time. Juices, sodas and other mixed drinks mean your bottle will need more stringent cleaning on a regular basis.
Step 1: Give your Bottle Some Daily Love
Brush the inside of your bottle regularly with a small bottle brush and water.
Step 2: Weekly Scrub Down
If the inside of your bottle is starting to look, feel or smell of anything other than stainless steel you may like to try one of these options on a weekly basis. These tips will also remove stubborn stains and discoloration.
1/ Regular white vinegar is excellent for removing staining and cleaning the inside of your products. Shake a couple of tablespoons of household white vinegar around the inside of your product and leave for a couple of minutes.
2/ Rinse the inside with water to “wet” the metal. Sprinkle a little salt onto a bottle brush and gently rub the salty brush on the inside of your bottle.
3/ Squeeze half a lemon into your empty bottle. Use your bottle brush to rub the lemon juice against the inside of your bottle.
Step 3: Tuck it in at Night
Store your empty bottles upside down with their lids off to ensure they do not smell stale when you need them next.
