Below are practical tips for healthy water bottle habits.

  1. Avoid using plastic containers whenever possible; instead, stick with stainless steel or a glass container.  
  2. Rinse the bottle immediately after use to avoid residues to dry and harden inside the container. It can make it more challenging to clean, especially if you are using it for drinking soups or smoothies.
  3. Never share your water bottle with a friend. Grab a straw or pour it into your mouth.
  4. Whenever possible, purchase a wide mouth opening for reaching further down into the container.
