How Bright is Your Bottle?

A solution for hard to clean drinking vessels.

If you are like me you feel good about reusing your travel mug and drink containers each day.  Every time you use them you are reducing the amount of trash you create and you are saving money.  What you might not like as much are the funny colors that sometimes appear in the bottom of your bottle or near the drink opening.  Cleaning these bottles/containers can be tricky as sometimes they have hard to reach places and you can’t be sure if you got them all or not.  You could use harsh chemicals on your bottle but that almost negates the good you are doing by using the reusable containers in the first place.

If any of this sounds familiar, we have a great product for you to try, Bottle Bright.  It was created by two friends who ran into these same issues and felt there must be a natural way to get their bottles clean.  They had a background in renewable fuel production which provided the experience they needed to research, formulate, and test their biodegradable cleaner.  Their product is Bottle Bright and the company behind it is Clean Ethics.

When explaining Bottle Bright to friends I tell them to think of it as Alka Seltzer for your dirty bottles.  You fill up your bottle with warm water, plop in a Bottle Bright tablet, and watch it go to work.  The non-toxic formula bubbles away dirt, grime, and smelly odors.  The magic comes from activated oxygen and their unique organic surfactants.  After the tablet dissolves, you shake up the Bottle Bright watery mixture and let it sit for 10 minutes.  When time is up you rinse and then you are good to go!

The goodness of Bottle Bright goes beyond it being a toxic free cleaning product.  All production is done in the USA which is great for keeping jobs local and for reducing the fuel costs of transporting the product to market.  Clean Ethics also maximizes recycled, recyclable, and biodegradable packaging materials and it donates an equal amount of every purchase of Bottle Bright to people in developing nations that desperately need clean water containers.
