We recommend cleaning your Chilly's Bottle regularly with hot soapy water and rinsing the bottle after each use. Please DO NOT use Milton sterilising fluid as this can affect the products.
For a very thorough clean we recommend using a mixture of bicarbonate of soda (1 - 2 teaspoons), a splash of water and your usual washing up liquid. Mix these together to create a paste and spread evenly around the inside of your cup/bottle, concentrating on any marks. Leave this mixture to sit for around 60 minutes (or slightly longer if you have the time) and then give your product a good scrub with hot soapy water and your Chilly's cleaning brush. If you do have any build up from tea or coffee use, you may need to repeat this a few times. Doing this should also help to remove and smell or taste from your Chilly's product.
Whilst Chilly's Bottles are made of high-grade stainless steel which preserves the flavour and freshness of your drinks, failing to clean Chilly's Bottles and their lids can lead to a smell or taste developing. For this reason, regular cleaning is highly recommended.
When not using your bottle, we recommend storing it without the cap on to allow the inside to dry out.
DO NOT put your Chilly's Bottle in the dishwasher or leave the bottle to soak in water for a long period of time. This can cause paint damage and can lead to the vacuum becoming ineffective.
