Care for Your Blue Bottle

Rinse inside of your bottles before first time use. Thereafter, clean the inside of your bottles as needed with Hydrogen Peroxide, White Vinegar or Grapefruit Seed Extract and water. We have extra long bottle brushes available. Washing with dish soap is fine, but it will be difficult to remove the soapy taste from inside the bottle. Soap will also leave a residue on the sandblasted portion of your bottle.  We do recommend though using our Blue Love All Purpose Cleaner.  It is made from 100% Plant Ingredients and Protective Probiotics.  It rinses easily and does not leave a soapy or fragranced residue.  It is truly amazing! And the water and soap you rinse out goes on  to create a life-enhancing environment in the waste stream.  Ideally you will use Blue Bottle Love bottles for water only. They are very easy to keep clean if you do not add anything but essential oils to your water.  These bottles are designed for honoring and blessing your water!  Smoothies and other beverages belong in nice wide mouth glass mason jars for easy cleaning!


Dry your sandblasted design with a clean towel to remove oils and water to 
reveal the original, high definition look. Apply a little alcohol onto the bottle design, and rub with clean cloth to really make it stand out brightly! Eventually the image will absorb body oils and the image will appear darker, but the design will never disappear, as it is deeply etched into the glass. If you really want to achieve the original “white” look of the design, denatured alcohol works the best. This is not the most pleasant product use, but it has the most powerful effect on the sandblasted image. Follow safety instructions found on the container, if you choose to use denatured alcohol.


Stay hydrated throughout the day, drinking half your body weight in ounces, in 
small increments every 20-30 minutes or so, rather than large doses at once. Our liters hold 34 oz and our half liters hold 17 oz.  Now you do the math to figure out how many refills you will be drinking each day!  You will notice that Blue Solar Water is smooth and sweet tasting, so you will actually want to drink more water than usual!  What a great benefit since most of us are dehydrated, and dehydration is a major cause of many ailments in the body.  Our bodies are 75-80% water, and 99% water by molecular count, so it truly is important to stay well hydrated with the best water you can find!

Always open the flip-top lid towards the same sides as the metal loop.  This will ensure that the locking mechanism will close properly.  If you do happen to open it towards the wrong side, just lift the two parts above mouthpiece, and move them together to the correct side, where the metal loop is.  Use this photo to see how  the metal loop looks when opened the right way.  As for how to open, the idea is to push or pull the two bent-wire connections found on each side of the cap away from the bottle. The easiest way is to either pull with thumb and forefinger, creating a leverage with the base of forefinger against the bottle or you can  push them with your two thumbs, while holding the bottle in place. Do NOT try to pry open the wire that is tightly clasped to the bottle–this can result in broken fingernails and discomfort to the finger. A little practice and you will be opening these bottles easily with one hand!

Carry your water bottle with you to be sure to drink plenty of water. We have custom organic hemp slings and custom recycled climbing rope carriers available in our online store. Blue Bottle Love travels very well too! In your suitcase filled with water so you have fresh, clean water upon landing. (Protect bottle by wrapping in clothing or cardboard.) As an empty carry-on, you can fill your bottle with water, once you are inside the terminal at a coffee shop or fountain and have Blue Bottle Love water with you when you travel….this is a very eco~conscious method, and it is what we do when we travel!

Finding the best water you have access to is something we definitely recommend.  Be sure to do your research and get a good quality water filter for your home.  Chlorine, chloramines, prescription drugs, fluoride and other undesirable substances tend to be found in tap water.  If you can get a whole house water filter as well as a drinking water filter, then you will be well equipped to enjoy water in your home when you drink, bathe, wash dishes, garden, etc.  Several locations have spring water delivery as well as high quality water stores.  Know where your water comes from.  Please stop the cycle of buying plastic water bottles of water.  It is such an undesirable way to package water, for water takes on the frequency of that which it is exposed to.  So spring water, held in plastic bottles can become tainted with the frequency of plastic and the BPA’s and other plastic undesirables.  Wild, Magical and Free Spring Water is our water of choice!  This water comes straight out of the earth and is so delicious and fresh.  Check out www.findaspring.com to  locate a fresh water source near you! It is worth the drive and a very fulfilling experience to collect spring water!

These blue glass water bottles are very thick and durable, yet they are still glass. Carrying a Blue Bottle Love bottle offers you the opportunity to raise your awareness in regards to tuning in to where your water bottle is and how you are carrying it.  Loving your water and your water bottle will definitely have an amazing effect on how long your bottle will last.  When you make Blue Solar Water, the water can become warm…or if you leave it in a warm car.  To cool it off, you can leave it outside overnight if the weather is not freezing, and your water will taste fresh and amazing the next day!  Please note, water expands when it is frozen so please do not put your full or even partial bottle of water into the freezer…it will probably crack.    A better way to cool off your water would be to put it into the refrigerator.  Enjoy your Blue Bottle Love Water!
