How do I get rid of the metallic taste in my metal water bottle? Just rinse 1 teaspoon with some soap and water, give it a light shake and let it sit for a couple hours, then rinse. If you don’t have baking soda, you can try a teaspoon of vinegar mixed with water. Then soak and rinse with soap and water after.
Why do metal water bottles smell? Why do reusable water bottles smell? Reusable water bottles smell because they collect odour-causing bacteria from backwash, sweat, and saliva. The odour can smell bad faster if reusable water bottles are stored in a wet area, or left with the lid sealed on for long periods of time with liquid in the bottle.
Why are stainless steel water bottles better than plastic? Stainless steel bottles have a number of pros and cons. Typically, they last longer than glass or plastic because they are corrosion resistant, and do not leach chemicals when exposed to sun/heat. They are generally more expensive than plastic, as the cost to produce them is much higher due to being energy intensive.
Why does my metal water bottle taste like plastic? Rest assured that the bottle is made of materials that are 100% free of BPA and BPS, so the smell or taste you’re experiencing isn’t a sign of harmful chemicals. If washing your bottle does not fully eliminate this problem, we recommend filling the bottle 3/4 full with warm water and a tablespoon of baking soda.
