Check out how simple it is to clean the water bottle (ขวดน้ำดื่ม which is the term in Thai) you use every day effectively. Water is essential for our health! Especially in summer, it’s good to have a bottle of water always close by to keep your hydration up to date. But, as it is used frequently, it is worth paying attention to cleaning the water bottle: even though its contents are water, our mouths come into direct contact with the liquid every time we drink. Therefore, here are tips on how to clean water bottles efficiently! Curious? Take a look!
Bleach Is The Solution To Clean Water Bottles
Like baking soda and vinegar, bleach can also be a great ally for effective water bottle cleaning. It is one of the ingredients used to sanitize food naturally, preserve wooden kitchen utensils, and even make your blender shine. To clean, wash well with water and mild detergent. Then, mix 1 liter of water with 1 tablespoon of sanitary water, put the solution inside the bottle, and let it soak for 1 hour. Oh, and remember to turn the cap upside down at the mouth of the bottle so that the neck is also in contact with the solution.
Raw Rice For Cleaning
Does your water bottle have some stains inside? No problem! To remove these unwanted stains, add water up to half of the bottle and add 1 tablespoon of raw rice. Now shake the bottle well, discard the contents and repeat the steps of cleaning mentioned above: wash well with water and detergent and soak in the bleach solution.
Fruit Salt: Help To Clean Water Bottles
This tip is suitable for those bothered by an unpleasant smell from the inside of the bottle. Don’t worry, there’s a solution for that too — and it works for both plastic water bottles and plastic pots! Just put some fruit salt in the bottle and some water, cover the bottle, give it a shake and let it soak for 15 minutes. After that time, wash normally.
Remember that these tips are for plastic bottles with a unidirectional spout; that is, the liquid in the bottle does not return to it. And remember: don’t forget the water inside the bottle for a long time, see? Hydrate yourself all the time!
