The last water bottle I had was a camelback one with insulation, and double layer plastic. Between the layers were these little dimples. The dimples kept the two layers apart. Good idea right? But the bad part was the dimples were inside the water bottle. Completely impossible to clean. I could see dimples with dark spots in them and I could do nothing about it. I swear I would occasionally get sick from it.
Fast forward to my next bottle, and the other side of the coin.
Clean Bottle makes a bottle that you will never have to worry about being able to clean every nook and cranny, since the bottle can be opened from both ends.
Just unscrew the top and bottom and go ahead, sponge it out with soap and hot water, and clean both ends. This bottle is getting clean.
For me as a cyclist, it’s important that the top is rubber and that it is pretty tight. Rubber is easier to open with your teeth without breaking anything in your mouth, and it’s a better seal. Clean Bottle gets a good grade from me on this count. After using it for 2 years, it’s still working great.
For more cleanliness, the rubber tip can also be removed and cleaned separately, as most bottle tops do.
I’ve been super happy with my Clean Bottles. I bought two of them and I only use one for my commute since it’s only 11 miles. I definitely recommend it, if you have questions feel free to comment and I’ll do my best to answer.
