Clean Bottle Review and Giveaway

Almost a year ago now, I was watching Shark Tank and I saw Clean Bottle on that show.  Clean Bottle is basically a water bottle that can be broken down so that it can be cleaned throughly.  The top comes off, the bottom comes off and the nozzle comes out so you can clean out any mold that may develop in there. 

I wanted to try it out and thought it would be a great product to review on my blog so I contacted them to see if they might send me one to review.  They said they would, so I waited.  And waited.  And waited.  I never received one even after contacting the company another time. 

So I was mad. 

But then I saw the really cute bottle they had designed to celebrate the Olympics
 
and decided that I wanted to have one anyway.  So I bought the "Buy 3 Get One Free" thing and got 4 of them. 

I have had the bottles for about 8 months now and have really enjoyed them.  I rotate 2 of them so one is always clean.  It is the perfect size and fits perfectly into my holder on my bike, on the spin bikes and in my cup holder in my car. 

The first time I needed to clean it, I had a hard time removing the nozzle from the top, but my husband got it out for me pretty easily.  Guess I just need man hands.

Once I had the nozzle out, it was pretty easy to clean.  I soaked it in bleach to kill everything, used a q-tip to clean out the gunk and then put it all in the dishwasher. 

Here is the bottle all disassembled and clean.


The top comes all apart to clean everything out, the bottom comes off so you can clean the entire bottle properly and the nozzle is removed to get the funk out.  Yay!  A bottle I don't have to throw away when it gets gross.

It goes easily in the diswasher and reassembles pretty easily.  I even used it during my triathlon this summer.

Even though they said they were going to give me a bottle to review and didn't, I still really like this bottle and would recommend it to anyone.  The bottle part is made in the USA, which is nice, and the company donates 10% of it's profits to eco and cycling friendly charities.  Cue the Awwweee.

For my readers and twitter followers, I have one limited edition Olympics Clean Bottle to give away.   You can't buy this one anymore so it may even be a collectable!  And no, I have not used it.
