It is important to keep a water-bottle clean because over time if a bottle is not cleaned properly or left for a period of time in the car or bag it can become a feeding ground for nasty bacteria.
Some drink bottles come with very small opening making it hard to get a sponge or a brush in there for a good clean.
Here are some simple instructions to make sure you prolong the life of your water-bottle.
- Fill the bottle up with water
- Drop in a denture tablet in (These can be found in the toothpaste section at the supermarket and don’t worry if you have to break up the tablet to fit it)
- Let the bottle soak for a few hours.
- Give it a good shake
- Now it needs a rinse and clean with warm soapy water.
