Washing Your Bottles, Cups, Canisters and Caps
- Our kanteens, cups, tumblers, caps (except for the bamboo cap), canisters and food boxes are all dishwasher safe.
- For thorough cleaning, you can use warm, soapy water and a bottle brush. We also recommend an old-fashioned cleaner: mixing water and baking soda making a nice thick paste.
- If your bottle or cap seems to be retaining flavors or smells, use diluted vinegar and soak them in it overnight. NOTE: the Stainless Unibody Bamboo Cap should not be soaked or immersed.
Unibody Bamboo Cap Care and Use
Handwash only! Not dishwasher safe. DO NOT submerge in water, expose to high temperatures or harsh detergents. Scrub with warm soapy water, rinse and dry immediately. To prolong the life of the bamboo, treat periodically with mineral oil (standard cutting block oil) or bees wax (w/mineral oil).
Reduce. Reuse. Repair… Our Maintenance Kits are designed to do just that. Our kits include o-rings, gaskets and gaskets tools -- a no-fuss fix that extends the life of your bottle so it's running as long as you are. Available for both Classic and Wide caps.
Is a piece of your cap lost or damaged? O-ring, gasket, valve, etc. Please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do everything we can to help.
