EXTENDED CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Don’t scrub your bottle with anything abrasive if you want to preserve its finish. Bleach or chlorine cleaners are a disaster, never use them. Mother bottles are made of stainless steel, which should not retain flavour or odours, but if you've already given your product a thorough clean (with warm soapy water and air drying with the lid off) you can try an old trick of mixing 60ml of vinegar with 3/4 tablespoon of baking soda and leave your bottle soak in it overnight, then rinse and dry thoroughly.
