A little daily love means that your Takeya bottle will love you back. Here are a few best practice tips to keep your bottle as good as new:
- Hand wash your bottle and lid daily with warm water and non-abrasive dish soap. Have a straw lid? Don’t forget to rinse your straw.
- Our bottles and lids are dishwasher safe and we encourage you to wash them that way especially if you drink something other than water to keep them mold and germ free. We recommend placing the lids in the top rack.
- For a deep cleaning, remove the Lid's O-Rings and soak in a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar. Do not use cleansers with harsh chemicals like bleach or chlorine as they can ruin your bottle. To remove your large O-rings, gently pull on the tab. For the Small O-ring, use a toothpick, unfolded paper clip or fork to gently pull it out of the drinking spout cap. Place the new O-Rings, flat side down, into the open areas and use the flat side of a toothpick and gently press the O-ring back into place. Check your lid to make sure the silicone O-Rings are in place. The O-Rings will create the airtight seal to keep in the cold.
- After cleaning, make sure that all parts are completely dry before reassembling.
