Cleaning & Maintenance
How do I clean my sportee bottle?
Wash in warm soapy water, then rinse (or you can pop it on the top shelf of a dishwasher). We recommend letting everything air fully dry before putting it back in your cupboard.
How do I remove the valve?
Unscrew the lid, taking the valve out. You may need to wiggle the valve from left to right.
How do I clean the valve?
Separate the 2 parts of the valve – the hard white retainer and the soft clear silicone.
Wash all parts thoroughly in warm soapy water, then rinse in clean water.
You can also wash all parts of your cup in the dishwasher (top shelf only) after each use.
Shake off any excess water and leave all parts to air dry before you put your Sportee bottle and valve back together.
How do I re-assemble my Sportee bottle?
To re-assemble, connect the soft clear silicone and white retainer parts together. Make sure that parts A and B of the soft silicone side are gently pushed through the white retainer.
And make sure that the slit in the valve is open by giving it a gentle squeeze.
Can my Sportee be sterilized?
Of course. Our cups are suitable for sterilization by steam (electric and microwave),
by boiling (5 minutes) and by cold water tablet / liquid solution. The only exceptions are our insulated active sippee and active straw cups, which are only suitable for cold water sterilization.
