Water Bottle Care

What is just as important to your health as pure drinking water?  Keeping your water bottles clean and sanitized.  Follow the steps below to maintain your bottle as clean as the water you store in it.


  1. Store un-capped bottles out of direct sunlight.


  1. Wash the inside of your water bottle with soap or baking soda and warm water.
  2. Shake mixture vigorously inside bottle, then let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Empty, rinse with clear water and drain thoroughly.


  1. Sanitize every 6-8 weeks with a gallon of hot water mixed with a 1/2 oz of household bleach.
  2. If the inside of the bottle shows signs of bio-film (‘green goo’), you can also add rice or beans with the hot water and it will scrape the inside of the bottle.
  3. Shake mixture vigorously inside bottle, then let stand 5 minutes.
  4. Empty, rinse well and let dry completely before refilling with drinking water.

Bottle Brush

We carry bottle brushes that can get deep into the crevices and reach the bottom of the larger 5 gallon water bottles.

  • Fill bottle with 1 gallon of hot water to use brush. Some like to add a drop of Dawn or white vinegar.
  • Swish vigorously inside bottle.
  • Rinse out water and refill with another gallon of hot water.
  • Swish vigorously inside bottle again.
  • Rinse out and let air dry.
