Thoughts on all Sodastream products

Sodastream bottles are high quality 1 liter containers with a special hermetic sealing cap, and may be used for up to two years. They are BPA free and compliant with international standards for beverage quality.

However, the trade off is these Sodastream bottles are not dishwasher friendly – you have to clean them by hand, which can be challenging to say the least. Otherwise, the soda residue will slowly build up on the inside of the bottle without proper cleaning.

The good news is this issue is easily solved with a bottle brush, which can be purchased at your local store or online at Amazon. A quick scrubbing will get those Sodastream bottles clean again!

  1. If you drink directly from your SodaStream bottle, as I do, you need to clean it at least once a week and sometimes a bottle brush just won’t get it clean. The method that I have found very effective is to use about 1/8th cup of AirSoft plastic BBs added to 1/2 bottle of water and 1/8 tsp of bleach. Put the cap on the bottle and shake vigorously until the inside is perfectly clean. Takes maybe 1 minute. Empty the contents of the bottle, including BBs, through a strainer (wire mesh works great) to separate the pellets from the spent bleach water, then rinse the bottle throughly until there is no smell of bleach left. Rinse, dry and store the pellets for reuse. You can buy AirSoft BBs at any Wal-Mart.

  2. That’s a great tip! I don’t drink from the SodaStream bottle but I’ll try this to get the bottles extra extra clean. Thanks!
