Advice for care of reusable BPA-free water bottles

Firstly, keep your bottles clean. Discard water and clean thoroughly after each use. Do not leave water sitting in bottles for drinking later.

Wash water bottles after each use. A solution of equal parts white vinegar and water is an environmentally safe way to clean your bottles. Occassionally, you can also sterilise water bottles with a mild sterilising solution (from the baby care or dental health section of your supermarket).

Refill water bottles with clean, fresh water (filtered if you prefer) before each use.

Store empty water bottles without their lids in a clean, dry place.

About BPA

BPA, an abbreviation of Bisphenol A, is an organic compound used in a variety of products including sunscreens, food preservatives, insecticides, fungicides, wood preservative, food containers, flooring, medication capsules, dental fillings, DVDs and CDs, eyeglass lenses and the lining of water pipes. Almost all metal food and drink cans are lined with epoxy resin containing BPA. It has used in such products for more than 50 years.

The news about health concerns is something to take seriously. Many health authorities advise that human levels of exposure are very low and do not pose a significant health risk when the products are used as intended. However, some countries and health authorities have been revising the safety levels and have started banning BPA in products intended for infants and others.
