Vinegar is Triumphant

When you begin to type the words "My Sigg" in the Google search engine, one of the phrases that automatically comes up is "My Sigg bottle smells." I must confess that I was having this very problem. Despite my efforts to rinse out my Sigg water bottle with dish washing liquid and water, it still had a funny odor.

I called the Sigg customer service center at (203)321-1220. I explained my problem to the receptionst. I then asked her this:

"What is the best way to clean my Sigg?"
"Use a drop of dish washing liquid and a little bit of vinegar. Dilute this solution with water. Let your bottle sit overnight. This will sterilize your bottle. Then rinse it out completely in the morning."

So I gave it a shot. And you know what? It worked! Then I had a flashback. I remembered a while back I was on the phone with my dad. He was raving about the fact that he had cleaned the bathroom with a solution of vinegar and water. Vinegar was his new natural cleaning agent.

I can tell you this; combined with dishing washing liquid, vinegar is excellent at cleaning a Sigg water bottle!


  1. LOL Yea I do that to my bottle when it is neeeded. Mine is plastic but it works the same. I just do the vinegar and water then let it sit and wash it like I normally would. My Mom taught me this trick, thanks Mom!!! <3

  2. Cool! I have to try vinegar out in various cleaning scenarios.

  3. My family has used vinegar as a cleaning product for years. It works very well on parquet flooring, leaving a nice shine. I just can't stand the smell lol.

  4. That's awesome, Rita! I never knew how wonderful vinegar could be! Though does have a pungent smell.
