Introduction: How to Clean a Hydration Bladder
We all hate nasty hydration bladder water. This instructable will teach you how to clean your hydration bladder after using it so it doesn't get nasty.
Step 1: Take It Apart
Empty all water out of it
Then take the mouth piece off, pull the hose out, etc.
Step 2: Bend the Hanger
You heard me- bend the hanger.
Take a wire hanger and bend it into the shape seen in the picture.
Before you use the hanger, shove a few pieces of paper towels into the opening. Move them around to get the majority of the water out.
Then use it as pictured.
Step 3: Clean the Hose
Tie a few knots on the end of a piece of paracord.
To clean the hose run the paracord through it with the knots towards the end. Pull it through and the knots will soak up any water/moisture left in the hose.
Then hang both up to dry.
Step 4: Clean Mouthpiece
Pinch the mouthpiece open and shake it like it owes you money.
Step 5: Wait
Wait until everything is dry, and then put it all back together.
It's just that simple.
