Every now and then a product comes along that makes me wonder how i lived without it. The most recent example is this new bike bottle, the Clean Bottle, which adds a clever removable bottom to the standard bike bottle allowing for quick and easy cleaning of the moldy gunk that often accumulates in dregs of a bottle.
Brilliant, right? 100% non-toxic BPA-free plastic, recyclable, and 10% of all profits go to charity.
In use it’s just like a normal bottle, albeit with slightly stiffer sides than many cheap plastic shop bottles (needed to keep the bottom on the bottle) so it takes a tad bit more energy to squeeze out the fluids, but that’s a small tradeoff for the ability to remove deadly mold from one’s beverage.
Not a drop has leaked from our test bottle after numerous uses and we don’t anticipate any ruptures (though I do have an idea for a prank based on the old salt-shaker gag).
Bottles are $9.99 with free shipping for four or more and five bottles gets you a sixth for free at cleanbottle.com.
