We recommend washing your Bivo bottle regularly to keep it looking and tasting great.
Before initial use, wash your bottle and bottle components with mild soap (for example, don't use Dawn) and warm water.
To clean, remove the nozzle* and straw**, and unscrew the lid. You can wash your Bivo bottle components by hand with warm water and a mild soap. The body of the bottle and the silicone components can be put in the dishwasher. You were also provided a long silicone squeegee for cleaning the straw. Reference FAQ below titled "What is the black silicone cord...for?"
*To remove your nozzle, first pull the nozzle up into the open position. With the lid removed, look inside the lid and find one of the three nozzle tabs. Press one of these tabs and pull your nozzle out at a slight angle. If it is difficult, try gently rocking your nozzle back and forth until it comes out easily. Do not force the nozzle out as it could cause damage. A bit confused? That’s ok, here’s a video for you to watch to help out a little more! (video)
**To remove your straw, simply pull on it from the halfway point until it pops off the lid.
