What's the best way to clean the pop-up drinks bottle?
What's the best way to clean the pop-up drinks bottle?

We know you want to make sure your pop-up drinks bottle is kept hygienically clean. So here's a step-by-step guide on how to clean it.

For daily cleaning, the pop-up and flip-up drinks bottles can simply be washed in the dishwasher. However, the insulated stainless-steel drinking bottle is not dishwasher safe. The dishwasher can fade the decorative print on these bottles, so we recommend washing them by hand. The insulated bottle's cap and straw are dishwasher safe.

Daily cleaning:

1. Unscrew the cap from the bottle.
2. Unscrew the white part that holds the spout by turning it anti-clockwise.
3. Pull the transparent pop-up spout out of the cap.
4. These parts can now be cleaned in the dishwasher.

These four steps are sufficient for daily cleaning. All of the components can be cleaned in the dishwasher.

We recommend that the cap is thoroughly cleaned once a week. Repeat the above four steps and then proceed as follows:

5. Press the button and, using a thin, blunt instrument, pry the coloured cover off the top of the cap.
6. Press the button again to push the coloured nozzle down and remove it from the cap. 
7. Squeeze the edges of the logo plate to slide it forward.
8. These parts can all be cleaned in the dishwasher. Afterwards, you can put them back together again.

Below are instructions for cleaning drinks bottles made before 2018:

1. Unscrew the cap from the bottle.
2. Before taking the cap apart, open the spout.
3. Unscrew the grey holder with the serrated edge from the cap by turning it anti-clockwise.
4. Remove the spout with the sealing ring and the metal spring from the cap. This is done by pressing the spout release button and simultaneously removing the spout with the spring and seal.
5. You can now clean these components. Although these parts can all be cleaned in the dishwasher, we recommend washing them by hand.
6. Before reassembling the cap, make sure the sealing ring is securely placed on the spout. You can do this by checking that the hole of the sealing ring on the inside of the spout is round . If this is not the case, reposition the seal on the spout.
7. Place the spout with the sealing ring and spring back inside the cap. This is done by pressing the release button as you insert the spout and seal.
8. Screw the grey holder with the serrated edge clockwise into the cap and make sure that it is firmly in place.
9. Press the spout closed again.
