The Ice bottle(กระติก น้ำแข็ง which is the term in thai) is not only a faithful companion on the hike. Many have them with them on the way to the office or the terrace during the cuddly evening. And so that you can enjoy your vacuum flask as long as possible, here are some tips.
Which Thermos Is Right For Me?
Think about what is ideal for you. Because: A half-full thermos insulated less well. So for less liquid, you better choose small bottles. Coated pans ( กระทะ เคลือบ which is the term in thai) have the same coating as thermos and ice bottles.
Open the bottle in the store and take a sniff. If it smells unpleasantly of chemistry, you better keep your hands off it. It could be polluting plasticizers and other pollutants in it.
The different materials have different advantages and disadvantages.
How To Clean Your Thermos
- The interior of thermoses is often not easily accessible. In everyday life, the bottle should be cleaned regularly with water, detergent and a brush. If stubborn coffee or tea stains have set, here are some tricks to make cleaning easier:
- Fill the dishwasher tab with hot water, allow to work in and rinse thoroughly.
- Alternative: denture cleaner. He is less aggressive than Spültabs and cleans gently. He is also a smell killer.
- Pour hot water into the bottle with three teaspoons of baking powder or a little soda powder and let stand for about 30 minutes.
- Put a handful of dry rice in the thermos and shake well. The rice scrapes the residue from the bottle wall. This method is especially good for metal bottles.
- The lid should be disassembled into its parts and placed in a bowl of detergent.
- Some stainless steel bottles can be cleaned in the dishwasher, according to the manufacturer. For this, however, the instructions for use should be studied carefully beforehand and applied to suit the usage.
