Clean Bottle


What took so long?

Both the bottom and the top unscrew so you can thoroughly clean the inside, which can be a problem if you've used your bottle for anything other than plain water.

Back in 2008 Apartment Therapy featured Sherwood Forlee's Perfect Peanut Butter Jar, which worked the same way.

For whatever reason — probably cost, since two working lids cost more to fabricate than one, plus letting you get all the peanut butter out would only delay your purchase of the next jar, not exactly good for the bottom line — it never took off.

Nicely done, Clean Bottle folk.

Step 1 in avoiding bottle cleaning problems is to actually clean them within 72 hours of use.

This design falls into a genre I call 'waltzing backwards into the 21st Century.' It has 2 failure points, at least one of which must be under pressure at all times. Perfectly fits the Green narrative—less reliable, more expensive, but different!

I have one of these, and I like it quite a bit. I would rather the bottom lid clamp on rather than twist on, though, as once it nearly worked itself loose in my bag somehow.
