Health Tip: Cleaning Reusable Water Bottles

-- Reusable water bottles often have become part of our everyday gear. But because germs thrive in moist environments, it's important to clean the bottles properly, says the Water Quality and Health Council.

Here are the council's suggested alternatives:

  • Open and run the top and container through the dishwasher.
  • Wash components with soapy water, sanitize with a dilute solution of bleach and rinse.
  • Use cleansing tablets designed to clean bottles.
