Our bottles are not designed to be dish-washer safe. Especially for the black bottle, we do not recommend putting in the dishwasher as it is likely to damage the paint finish on your bottle. We recommend washing by hand to maximise the longevity and maintain the appearance of your bottle.

Before using either, however, make sure you totally disassemble your Red Original insulated water bottle to avoid any residue build-up and ensure they can be cleaned thoroughly.

1. Liquid Dish Soap

For everyday washes, warm, soapy water will do the trick.  Fill your bowl with warm, soapy water – if you can’t get your hands in the water it is too hot and might damage the finish on your bottle. Please do not use boiled water straight from a kettle to wash the outside of your bottle. Fill your bottle with the warm soapy water, place the lid/cap back on your water bottle and give it a good shake. If needed, you can use a bottle brush to reach all the way down to the bottom to scrub off any residue. Don’t forget to wash the lid inside and out as well, paying extra attention to the spout opening or mouthpiece. Rinse and dry your bottle thoroughly before replacing the cap to avoid any build-up of mildew.

Our bottles are not suitable for being left to soak in water for extended periods as this can damage the bottle and seal.

2. Distilled White Vinegar

Use it to clean your water bottle by filling it halfway with equal parts vinegar and water. Return the bottle’s lid and give it a few shakes before letting it sit with the solution overnight. The next day, be sure to rinse out the water bottle and the lid thoroughly with warm water to remove any leftover vinegar. Let dry. This is a particularly good way to clean a stainless-steel water bottle.
