If you normally use reusable water bottles, congratulations! You have already taken a big step to stop polluting the planet with single-use plastic bottles. But it is also likely that you have already found that, over time, they tend to smell bad, and sometimes the taste of the water is not entirely pure. This is because there are germs in the water, which are not harmful to the human body but are the cause of the bad smell and taste of the bottles when they proliferate. To prevent your bottle from being a breeding ground for germs, it is crucial to know how to clean a stainless steel bottle and to do it regularly, especially on the inside. There are several ways to do it: the traditional one, for which you will need a bottle cleaning brush or the technological one.


Stainless steel 18/8 bottles do not transmit taste or odor to water, while more economical aluminum bottles can impart taste to water.

The 18/8 stainless steel bottles are made so that they do not transfer flavor to the beverages. However, we recommend always washing them thoroughly after each use and leaving them open without the cap to dry completely, unless you use a self-cleaning bottle with self-cleaning technology.

How to wash your reusable stainless steel bottle

1. Traditional method for cleaning a stainless steel bottle

First, we need to have a bottle-cleaning brush. In order not to spill water when drinking, stainless steel bottles have a small mouth, which is sufficient for drinking but impossible to access by hand. This makes it impossible to clean the inside with a sponge or scouring pad. Therefore, you need a long, narrow brush with which you can easily access the inside of your reusable bottle. This is the only way to clean both the bottom and the walls properly. In addition, of course, you will need dishwashing soap and water.

From time to time, you can do a deeper cleaning, especially if you use your bottle to drink coffee or tea. To do this, use baking soda and vinegar. When these two products come into contact, they produce an effervescent reaction that helps remove the stains inside the bottle.

Ideally, the stainless steel bottle should be washed after each use with a non-abrasive brush, preferably made of vegetable fibers.

Can stainless steel bottle be washed in the dishwasher?

It is not advisable to clean stainless steel bottles in the dishwasher, especially if they are colored or stamped, as the high temperatures used by this appliance can damage the bottle.

2. Technological method for cleaning stainless steel bottles: UV technology

Cleaning the reusable stainless steel bottle is often cumbersome, especially if we use it outside the home. The typical bottle that we have in the office, we take to the gym, or we go to the mountains.
But there is also a portable sterilization system that uses ultraviolet light to clean the bottle at the touch of a button, which is very practical and convenient.
This type of smart bottle solves all these problems. Thanks to its UV-C self-cleaning technology, it eliminates the bacteria that cause bad odor and bad taste in the bottle. The UV light technology breaks the DNA of bacteria, destroying them.

What is LED UV-C sterilization technology?

The 280 nm UV-C LED technology is ideal for germ eradication and has long been used in the sterilization of surgical equipment in hospital operating rooms. It is fast, effective, and has no mercury, ozone, or chemicals.

Am I really not going to have to clean my bottle ever again?
