Keeping flasks clean. What’s the secret?


Recommended Posts

I now make a flask of tea for Emma at bedtime so she can swallow meds easier should she need to. They look sparkling inside when I clean and rinse them but always smell after a few hours. Like old washing-up water. (Stainless steel, unbreakable flasks because everything ends up falling on the floor here!)

 

What do I need?

Bicarbonate of soda?

Denture tablets?

...?

 

Emma doesn’t like the idea of me hanging a toilet cleaning block on each one. Lavender tea is a thing, right?

I use a flask everyday but I keep only water in it.  Off the top of my head, I would suggest as you said, using bicarbonate of soda or lemon juice and water.  (The more concentrated the lemon, the better.)  You may also wish to do a google search using the phrase "cleaning flasks naturally". :)

How To Clean A Yeti or Tervis Cup

Whether your goal is to remove a stain or an odor in your favorite cup here is the best trick:

1. Don’t use the dishwasher

2. Pour some baking soda into the cup (use enough to cover the stain and a little more to scrub off at least the side of the cup)

3.Pour half a cup of white distilled vinegar in the cup

4.Use a non-scratch sponge or damp rag to use the paste created and scrub

5. Rinse

NO MORE SIPPING LAST WEEK’S COFFEE STAINS OR BEER ODORS!

Logically, I am not cleaning them properly, they are getting contaminated afterwards, or it’s my breath!

 

I boughta-better-bottle-brush and read the 1995 Awake about bad breath.

 

I’ll try the vinegar and baking soda thing on Emma’s favourite mug. (Next to an open window.)

I have seen several books mention making a ‘volcano’ with the kids using those. I remember choking and opening the window when we did it.

Yeah. Don't mix bleach and ammonia either.That will kill you. 

 

After I retired,  after many years of welding,  I found out that using a certain automotive cleaning product(Braklean) on a hot piece of steel will also kill you. Apparently it creates phosgene, a chemical warfare agent used in the war to end all wars, volume one...

 

Who knew?....

I reckon that I'm lucky that I never breathed the fumes, everytime I did that---:oops:

So, you're gonna use the new model bottle brush to clean your teeth?  Nice. .

 

If people complain about my breath,  I just tell them that it's the stink that's imbedded in the hair under their nose, blowing back in their face...:beard3:

 

(Should that be in the beard thread, I don't want to rub someone raw?)
