Article Summary


Plastic bottles can get dirty over time, but you can easily clean yours in a few minutes. Fill your bottle halfway with soapy water, put the lid back on, and shake it vigorously. Then, use a sponge or cloth to wipe around the lip of the bottle and the lid. If you have a long-handled brush, you can also clean the inside of the bottle with it. When you’re finished, rinse your bottle and leave it to air dry. Alternatively, wash your bottle in the dishwasher. Just place it on the top rack, since many dishwashers have a heating element in the bottom that could warp or melt the plastic.
