Review: Bottle Bright from Clean Ethics

posted by gumptiongear November 16, 2012 0 comments

So, you’ve kicked your eco-fail plastic bottled water habit, and made the switch to a reusable bottle. And while you’ve made a solid eco-friendly and financially freeing choice, there are a few downsides.

First, the very nature of a reusable bottle means that more often than not, your afternoon lemonade knows you cheated on it with a morning latte.  Even worse, you may actually end up using more water to clean your bottle after you wash it with soap and proceed to rinse, rinse and rinse some more in hopes you aren’t stuck with that soapy water taste on your next hike, run, or ride.

Bottle Bright effervescent tablets provide a better solution for cleaning your drinking vessels and beverage containers.  Manufactured by Clean Ethics, Bottle Bright cleans naturally, easily and effectively, so you’re left with nothing but the crisp clean taste of the drink you put in your bottle, and nothing more.

The Issues We All Face…
Whether your drinking vessel of choice is a reusable water bottle, travel mug, or hydration reservoir, the issue of cleaning can be a constant consternation.   Sure, you can rely upon traditional methods of cleaning your vessel of choice, but those old school methods have a few drawbacks:

  • Brushes and soap can scrub, but often fail to thoroughly clean all surfaces or hard to reach areas.  Moreover, while you’re trying to make a difference with your reusable bottle, the hand washing process simply wastes more water as you work feverishly to chase out the soapy residue with more and more water.
  • You can use a dishwasher, but they can’t fit large items, nor can they effectively reach into narrow openings.  Even worse, some water bottles still contain Bisphenol A (BPA) and extreme heat can release BPA from the plastic bottle allowing it to leech into your water.  No bueno.
  • Finally there’s the option of home remedies or chemicals.  While effective, the home remedies can be time consuming and inconvenient.  Harsh chemicals such as chlorine bleach are dangerous to handle and carry the risk of toxic contamination to people and the environment.

The Bottle Bright Solution…
Whether your battle is against that coffee stained travel mug, or a hydration reservoir that refuses to relinquish the taste of sugary sweet sports drinks, the cleaning process can be a drag.  Bottle Bright effervescent tablets eliminate the hassle by cleaning in a quick, simple and effective manner with  non-toxic, biodegradable, and chlorine-free ingredients.


Simply fill the hydration vessel with warm water, drop in a tablet, put on the lid and go be productive for 10 minutes.  Then come back, empty the bottle, give it a quick rinse and behold the beauty of a clean bottle!

Over the course of testing the product, our gear guru’s used Bottle Bright on every reusable bottle, coffee pot and reservoir in our gear closet.  From insulated stainless steel, to glass and plastic, the Bottle Bright tablets not only cleaned the bottle(s), mugs and pots, but removed stains we assumed had become immutable fixtures on the vessel.


The effervescent action and mild organic detergents of Bottle Bright removed soils and stains ensuring the only taste was the refreshing, replenishing drink we put into our bottles, and nothing more.

Beyond Your Bottle…
At the end of the day, our clean water bottles and mugs mean nothing to those around the globe suffering from a lack of clean, reliable water.  More than one in six people worldwide do not have access to clean water.  That’s nearly 1 BILLION people who are drinking water that could make the sick.  That’s why with every package of Bottle Bright sold, Clean Ethics gives the same amount of Bottle Bright to people in vital need of clean water containers. Clean in Kind.

Bottom Line…
Bottle Bright ensures that no matter how many times you refill your hydration vessel, no matter what you put into it, your reusable bottle, canteen or mug will keep your drinks fresh, crisp and clean tasting. Clean it once. Clean it right. Get on with life…
