Cleaning expert and author of “Clean My Space” Melissa Maker breaks down how to clean your water bottle and its accessories and how often you should be doing so.
Following is a transcript of the video.
Melissa Maker: I would say you want to clean your water bottle as often as you would clean your drinking glass or your coffee cup. So, when you’re at home, typically after a — I mean for me, I use a glass or a cup for a day and then I would wash it. So, I would recommend if you’re walking around with a water bottle, try to give it a rinse once a day.
BI: How do you clean the rubber nozzles on some bottles?
Maker: Well, you want to soak those in vinegar. And you can soak them overnight. That can help get rid of the mould or any of the odours or anything like that. And if you do notice odours in any of your water bottle accessories, you can actually soak them in plain baking soda. And you can do that for even a couple of hours or even overnight if you notice it’s a really strong odor. And the baking soda will help remove that odor. Give it a good rinse or else it will taste really salty when you go to have another sip and you won’t notice any odours anymore.
