The Collapsible Bottle

Can I put hot liquids in my collapsible bottle?

Yes! Our collapsible bottle is made of 100% food-grade silicone, it is safe for hot liquids up to 450°F (230°C). No burning, no melting. However we do not recommend using it for liquid temperatures higher than 140°F (60°C) to avoid burning your hand while holding it.

Can I put it in the freezer?

The bottle is made from silicone, which is a material rated for very low and very high temperatures. That said, water expands when frozen, so you shouldn’t fill your bottle completely when you freeze it. You can also fit ice cubes into your collapsible bottle with its wide mouth opening.

Can I put it in the microwave?

The bottle's inner ring and cap are made of stainless steel, and it's not microwave-safe.

Is the collapsible bottle dishwasher safe?

Yes! The collapsible bottle is completely dishwasher safe. To ensure the best wash, clean your bottle with a scrub brush, then place upside down in the top rack of the dishwasher fully expanded. Since silicone is non-porous it should never get too dirty no matter the beverage!

Does it keep drinks hot or cold for a long time?

The collapsible bottle is not specifically designed to insulate liquids, hot or cold. However, they will still keep your drinks warm or cool for longer than average.

Is the collapsible flimsy to drink out of?

Even though it's collapsible, but that doesn’t mean it can’t stand strong! There is a stainless steel embedded mouth piece that creates a firm mouth opening to drink out of. Nothing flimsy about that!

Can I drink out of the collapsible bottle when it is collapsed?

Yes! You can drink out of the collapsible bottle when it is both expanded and collapsed. It's desgined to be used as a small bottle when collapsed and full size bottle when expanded

Do you offer different types of caps?

Yes! We currently have two different types of caps. Our original stainless steel cap is what comes standard on every collapsible bottle. Lucky for you there are options! We also have a stainless steel cap with a loop to make your hikes and active lifestyles even easier!

My collapsible bottle is leaking, what can I do?

The collapsible bottle is designed to be completely leak-proof! If you are having trouble with a slow leak, it’s most likely due to an improper seal. Any squeezing or pressure added to the bottle while sealing the cap will cause the bottle to deform and allow for leakage. It’s important to seal properly by holding the neck of the bottle and closing firmly to create an airtight seal. For more details, see our instruction video here!

How do I make my collapsible bottle to stand properly?

Because of its design and collapsible material, the bottle is flexible and lightweight, and may not have the same support as a conventional bottle. As a specialty item this makes it compact and easy for traveling, outdoors and fitness activities, but it’s generally not recommended for desktop use.

When your bottle is on a flat surface make sure to expand fully, then hold the neck of the bottle while sealing firmly for it to stand upright! Avoid squeezing the bottle body as this will make it take on an unnatural shape. Watch our helpful instruction video here!

My collapsible bottle has a weird taste, how can I fix this?

collapsible bottle is made of 100% BPA-free food-grade silicone which is taste and odor free. Bottles can take on a temporary taste during the manufacturing process as residuals may collect, but this is why we recommend a deep clean before first use!

Use a scrub brush to clean your collapsible bottle thoroughly, then boil in water (without the cap) for 15 minutes and let air dry until cool. If you are still experiencing issues with a weird taste, scrub with lemon juice and baking soda and then rinse thoroughly. Watch our helpful instruction video here!

Do I need to prepare my collapsible bottle before first use?

Yes! First things first.. cleaning! We know you’re excited to start using your collapsible bottle, but it’s important to give an initial deep clean since it’s a personal hygiene product. (see ‘How do I clean my collapsible bottle?’ below)

How do I clean my collapsible bottle?

Before first use we recommend using a scrub brush to clean your collapsible bottle thoroughly, then boiling in water (without the cap) for 15 minutes and letting it air dry until cool. This cleaning helps remove any bacteria or residuals that may have collected on the surface.

For a deeper clean, you can also boil for 15 minutes in water with a tablespoon of baking soda. Then rinse thoroughly and let air dry until cool. Remember collapsible bottle is also dishwasher safe, and since silicone is non-porous it should never get to dirty no matter the beverage!

How do I keep my collapsible bottle safe?

Our collapsible bottle is the ultimate traveling companion and adventure buddy! It is extremely durable so general wear-and-tear from heat, cold, or impact will not affect it like conventional water bottles. However make sure to be mindful of sharp objects as the silicone material is not cut-resistant. Keep the knives, scissors, and pointy-things far away!

Will there be damage if I collapse my collapsible bottle too many times?

No. There won’t be any damage caused by frequent collapsing and expanding because silicone is an extremely flexible material. To avoid damage due to improper use, please make sure to take proper care of the bottle and only expand or collapse it with the cap off.

Yes! The silicone and stainless steel in the bottle are both recyclable at special facilities. Let us know if you are unsure or need help locating one!

Yes! Both sizes will fit any standard cup holder, expanded or collapsed. Feel free to take it on the go and put it in your car, on your bike, and of course in the smallest purse or bag you have!

Since collapsible bottle isn’t made of a hard metal it can’t be considered for misuse (a weapon) and therefore is allowed to jam out with you at any music festival!

Can I fly on a plane with my collapsible bottle?

collapsible bottle is TSA approved and is allowed to travel with you or in your check on bag. (Don’t forget to empty the water out before you go through airport security!)

How can I maintain a freshwater taste?

Fill the collapsible bottle with equal parts lemon slices or lemon juice and filtered water. Soak overnight, wash rinse thoroughly, then air out to dry. Another way to increase freshness you can also add 1-2 drops of essential oils, wash and rinse your collapsible bottle thoroughly after use of additives to remove residue. While drinking use filtered water if possible, unfiltered water has bacteria and can cause a stale odor in your collapsible bottle. Be sure to replace water that has been stagnant in your bottle for several hours, especially in hot, humid environments.
