Quick tip #3

Use a tablespoon of Baking Soda (also known as Bicarb or Sodium Bicarbonate) mixed with a pint of hot water to clean or freshen up your drinking bottles and hydration bladders, especially if you use additives and energy drinks.

Milton or baby bottle sterilisation tablets are cheap to buy and will help make your drinking kit hygienic. Follow up with the above Baking Soda tip to get rid of lingering odours and leave a pleasant freshness.

Nice tip, I remember my Dad doing this to his flask but had forgotten about it

I find that if you’re just using water in your bladder, then putting it straight in the freezer (in a plastic bag) stops it from going mouldy and no need to dry it. When you want to use it again, you can refill it with water from the tap and it defrosts almost instantly.
