I usually clean / de-scale my 2L Nalgene like every 3-4 months. Drinking out of a toilet would probably be better for my health.

What's the maximum amount of time without cleaning your reusable water bottle before it starts making you sick?

I have two identical ones so I can leave the other one full, in the freezer. This doubles the normal amount of time I can go without giving them a once over. Working in restaurants, I have access to industrial cleaning apparatus which I use once a week. Any longer and the threads at the top become indefensibly gross. Ever wipe the top with a white napkin after a road trip and it comes away with dark orange streaks? Human beings are disgusting.

Relatedly, I love the idea of camelbacks, but I could not be satisfied after two months of use that they would ever be sanitary again.

Yup. Actually at some point I had one start smelling bad so I pulled another one out of the pile of free ones I've gotten over the years

They say, "you mean it's just sounds?" thinking that for something to just be a sound is to be useless, whereas I love sounds just as they are, and I have no need for them to be anything more than what they are.


I have two, and I generally go about three days with one before putting it in the dishwasher and using the other.

I also never put my mouth on the lip, preferring instead to pour the water into my big stupid open mouth from a slight distance.

like once every couple of weeks usually. I have the little rubber inserts for the wide mouth Nalgene to help control the flow so I don't make a mess of myself and those need cleaning wayyyy more often

tbh tho I have like 3 32oz Nalgenes and 2 24oz bike water bottles and another 20 oz one by my computer so it's a lot to keep track of

I'm hip to the streaks. Dark orange exactly like you describe. Vile!

Sometimes I will take a swig and immediately feel like 5% nauseous. That's when I dump the water out and rinse with hot water, but I usually don't break out the bottle brush + effervescent descaling tablets until I start wiping orange Crudd from around the Rimm.

Both of the default lids on my two 48oz 'genes are broken and in different ways. I ordered replacements from the official Nalgene site over two months ago. I finally called customer support last Friday and they assured me they'd overnight a new shipment of my order. This order was supposed to arrive yesterday and I have yet to receive my fwiggen lids!!

i have a water filter that cost like 400 bucks that screws right onto a nalgene bottle and filters a L of water in about 30 seconds. its one of my favourite things I own easily. theres a video where the hipster idiots at the company that make it go to rural india and stick it in a ditch and fill a bottle and the locals literally come running and are like 'noooo don't drink that!!'

but you can drink it. pretty cool.

My wife had one I made her throw away, and promise not to be gross anymore. She hadnít cleaned it for years and the bacteria had pitted and was deteriorating the top of the bottle. She kept it at work so I normally didnít see it.

This arrived this morning!

The only time I tried washing my bottle in the D-Washer the lid ended up floppin' down onto the heating element that dries the dishes during the dry cycle. It melted / cut the lid in twain like a lightsaber.

I'll try this again sans lid, thanks!

And while I was there this Indian guy comes running up to me with tears in his eyes, he says "Sir, we can't let you do this. Sir you can't drink the ditchwater." Big, strong guy, folks, and he had tears. And then a big, big crowd came too. I don't want to say a number, because then they'll... well, let's just say it was a huge crowd. Tremendous. Of Indians. They like me in India. And I assume there were others too. But I did drink that water. Believe me, I drank it. I drank it strongly until there was none left. Dirty water like you wouldn't believe, in that ditch. But these filters, they're something aren't they? Yes they are, they're something folks. And the people, the Indians, they loved it and they said "Thank you, sir, thank you." Beautiful Indian women came up to me to say thank you, to kiss me, you know, but that's. Well, let's just say they were very grateful and sometimes, maybe a little too grateful.
