    Default Dirt inbetween water bottle covers

    Sorry, no pic...

    Well, i just started drinking more water so have a few water bottles (ok, basically i only drink tetra pack and canned drinks from fridge in the past, now i mix honey etc to drink...)

    Anyway, just now my mom was like telling me i have to scrub the threads of the covers, and i was like, neh, i was cleaning it like this... then feeling skeptical... i look at my cover again... damn alot of black moldy stuff... yikes... faster clean them up...

    But its all in the threads... used 3 tissue and some still there... i wonder what kinda bottles you guys use that won't be so 'dirty'...

    I find that the worse is those nike polycarbonate bottles, have too many pockets that alot of dirt and bacteria might be trap inside.... yikes...

    High pressured water jets, as well as toothbrushes are good for getting into the nooks and crannies of water bottles.

    AVOID warm or hot water to cleanse the bottles.

    If you like, you could also use something like a cholorahexadine wash (anything from 3-10%) to aid in killing bacteria.

    The best/safest water bottles are the stainless, or glass-lined stainless steel ones.

    CHEERS!

    Exclamation Re: Dirt inbetween water bottle covers

    For office, I use a large water bottle but I don't drink directly from the bottle. Instead I use a disposable cup (change every 1-2 days) and pour out what I need.

    Before, when I used to drink directly from the bottle, after a few days, the bottle will need to be washed especially round the threads area as bacteria (and bad breath from my mouth hahaha) starts to breed there.

    By pouring out the water, no contact with human flesh thus less/no bacteria and only need to rinse occasionally.

    there are no shortcuts. just regular cleaning routine. i use brush for brushing milk bottles to reach the inside of the bottle.
