One of the most common questions we get asked about with our hydration bladder is what is the 'plastic' or 'chemical' type taste when we first use it?
If you Google this then you will see it is a very common question concerning all plastic water holders, be that bladders or bottles etc. The most important thing to stress is that the plastic taste it is NOT harmful in any way and that it is easily resolved
Our hydration water bladders are BPA and BPS free so are 100% safe and any bad taste is not harmful. Again, if you do a bit of research there are many suggestions as to how to get rid of the taste but here is what we have found to be the quickest and best way to get rid of the taste with our bladders or any other plastic water holder.
We recommend the following steps before first use
Fill the bladder full with warm soapy water and wash and shake the bladder well. Then empty the warm soapy water and fill it again about 2/3 full with warm water mixed with a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda and at least a table spoon of lemon juice and leave to soak for a minimum 30-60 minutes. Then rinse, rinse and rinse again and you are then good to go
We would love to hear any other solutions or suggestions so please contact us if you have any.
