How to Clean Smelly Blender Bottles
I’ve used this technique on a Blender Bottle that was hiding in my car for around 6 weeks, and it worked! Ready? Let’s get started…
- Dirty Blender Bottle or Bottles
- 4 Tablespoons of Baking Soda
- 1/4 cup of Vinegar
- 4 tablespoons of lemon/lime juice
- 2 tablespoons of used coffee grounds
Gather all the “ingredients” and dump them into the bottle. Add the vinegar last, and add it slowly. It reacts with the baking soda and will foam up. Adding it slowly keeps it from going all over your kitchen counter.
Now take the bottle, give it a good shake, and let it sit overnight (or at least 8 hours). I’ve heard that sitting it in the sunlight can help, but I’ve not really found any difference in end result by doing that.
The next morning, give it a good rinse and dry it out. You should now have a clean Blender Bottle. It may have a lingering smell of vinegar/coffee, that will fade away in a few hours, just leave the lid off. If you notice that the bottle still has that funky smell. Try running it through again. I had one smelly Blender Bottle that I had to clean twice to get it to smell better.
That’s it! How did it work out for you? Let me know in the comments below. Know of a better way? Share that too!
