Yeah, you read that title right. We wrote an entire blog post about a bottle brush. Why, you ask? C’mon people—dirty bottles are downright gross. And cleaning them thoroughly can be a challenge.  

But—drum roll, please—it doesn’t have to be so hard. 

What’s the Big Deal About a Bottle Brush? 

Did you know that humans use around 1.2 million plastic bottles per minute? That's a lot of plastic. Unfortunately, over 90 percent of that plastic isn't recycled. Buying a reusable water bottle is obviously a great investment for the earth (and it can also save you money).  

However, once you buy a reusable water bottle, you'll need a way to keep it clean.  

A dedicated bottle brush is the perfect way to keep your reusable bottle as clean as can be. But there’s more to choosing the right bottle-cleaning brush than you might think. Keep reading to learn why you need the 2-in-1 Bottle Brush from Owala.  

Why Does the Bottle Brush You Choose Matter? 


Everyone’s routine is different, but for 32 percent of Americans, working out is a crucial part of their day. Before, during, and after your workout (um, like all the time), you want to be sure you have fresh, bacteria-free fluids. One of the best ways to do this is to clean your bottle regularly. 

Protect Yourself 

The average reusable water bottle contains more germs than your kitchen sink (or even your dog's water bowl—ewww). Squeeze-top water bottles are the biggest culprit, with 99 percent of the germs on them being harmful. However, screw-top bottles are close behind.  

Gross, right? Cleaning your water bottle is important, and to get a good clean, you need the right water bottle brush.  

Protect Your Water Bottle 

When you invest in a good water bottle, you don't want to clean it with anything that might damage the finish. Some types of bristles or abrasive materials can harm your water bottle, or, on the flip side, they might not get your bottle clean enough.  

Why You’ll Want the Owala 2-in-1 Bottle Brush 


When shopping for a bottle brush, you’ll want to consider the size of your water bottle as well as the bristles and functionality of the brush. If you want the best possible clean for your water bottle, our 2-in-1 Bottle Brush is your go-to choice. Here’s why. 

Designed for Owala® Water Bottles 

Our 2-in-1 Bottle Brush is designed for Owala water bottles. If you’re already the proud owner of one or more of our bottles (go, you), using our brush makes perfect sense.  

However, even if you use another bottle brand (but why would you?), our bottle brush will still get the job done. (It’s not rocket science here, although it’s kinda close.) 

Antimicrobial Bristles 

In the fight against germs, mold, and mildew, are you winning the battle? Unless you’re some sort of science geek with your own microscope and test kit, can you really know?  

No. But you can invest in a 2-in-1 Bottle Brush, equipped with antimicrobial bristles that will reach every nook and cranny of your water bottle. That’s how you stand a fighting chance. 

Tough Lovin’ Bristles  

Not only are the bristles on this brush antimicrobial, they’re also the perfect balance of strong and sensitive. Meaning, they’re tough on grime yet gentle on your bottle’s bespoke surface. 

Have you ever mixed up a protein shake or other drink in your water bottle, only to find stubborn bits of powder caked on the bottle’s inside? Have you ever had a reusable bottle roll under your car seat and get lost there for days? 

The resulting stains and smell are no joke. However, the bristles on the Owala bottle brush do an excellent job tackling tough stains and stink. And yet, they’ll leave the powder-coat finish on your beloved Color Drop bottle as pure as the day it was born.  

Removable Brush Head 

Yup, even a bottle-cleaning brush needs a deep clean of its own sometimes. With this beauty of a brush, you can simply remove the head and pop it in the dishwasher for a seriously sanitizing clean. 

Twist-n-Hide Straw Brush 

If you have a water bottle with a straw, it's important to keep the straw clean as well. Running water through the straw and wiping its outside isn't enough. You need to scrub the straw’s interior with a tiny straw-sized brush.  

Tucked inside the handle of our 2-in-1 Bottle Brush, you'll find a second, flexible straw brush. It twists and hides away, so you don't have to worry about misplacing it. Not only is it designed to fit the inside of your Owala bottle’s straw, it’s also perfect for keeping the inside of the Owala® FreeSip® spout clean and germ free. (You’re welcome.)  

No-Slip Grip 

Bottle washing can be slippery business. Unless, of course, you use the Owala 2-in-1 Bottle Brush with its handy dandy non-slip grip. 

Hang It Up  

Yup, we literally thought of everything. Like the fact that a bottle brush can be pesky unless it’s properly stored. Our brush has a clever, integrated hanging loop, so you can stash it away while using minimal space.
