    5 Ways to Clean a Funky Water Bottle

    This is a very strange idea to me. One could get a bunch of different chemicals but don't have access to sand? I mean don't you have those playgrounds around where kids play? Those are filled with sand. Beaches. Pine forests. I could think of so many places just within a five minute walk with sand.

    I don't see why you'd do this. The simplest way there is, is pour boiling water into it, some disinfectant and then plain old sand. Shake the bottle for a couple of minutes (do not close the lid/cap entirelly before shaking, that would just result in hot water spraying everywhere) and pour it out. If it is still dirty repeat it and shake longer but usually that's enough.
