Our hydration needs haven’t changed, but our habits have, and our Soma bottle, brew bottle, carafes and pitchers are being used in overdrive right now. Which means, we need to clean them more often. Because they’re water products, they are susceptible to mildew and other types of gross growths. Here’s how to clean each of them so that you don’t have to worry about anything invading your water or coffee.
The Soma Bottle is dishwasher safe, but the lid should be handwashed. If you’re handwashing your Soma bottle you should clean it in warm soapy water, taking care to slosh around the inside or squeeze a slender brush in there to reach the bottom. [Side note: we are working on our very own Soma bottle brush right now, something to perfectly keep yours clean – we promise it’s worth waiting for.] As for the lid, the trick is to remove the little silicone “O” ring that nests inside the lid and give it a good scrub but don’t forget to put it back since this little guy is what keeps the bottle leakproof!
The Brew Bottle’s components are all dishwasher safe as well but a good handwashing now and then with some baking soda will help remove any coffee from the top components. For the stainless-steel mesh filter, a soak in a solution of baking soda and water and then a good rinse is best.
For our Soma Carafe and Pitcher, all components are dishwasher safe except the Pitcher vessel which has a renewable bamboo handle. But again, a good handwashing from time to time on all components, particularly the reservoir parts, is worthwhile. Using baking soda and a bit of water, make a paste and apply it to the silicone seals and anywhere else that might be discolored or in need of some cleaning. Leave it for fifteen minute and then give it a scrub with a brush or gentle abrasive. The vessels should be cleaned in warm soapy water and rinsed clean.
Because your beverages should be pure.
