If you’re using a stainless steel tumbler, you’re less likely to get bacteria build up. But tumblers still accumulate germs and need to be cleaned regularly. Here, we’ll break down all the steps you should take to clean your favorite tumbler so you can start using it again!

How to Clean the Lid

Tumbler lids are an easy place for gunk to build up and for bacteria to grow. They may require a little more attention than the rest of your tumbler. That’s okay!

For best results, let the lid soak in warm soapy water for around 10 minutes to loosen up anything that may be on it. After you’ve let it soak, give it a good scrub and a rinse. Let dry and enjoy!

How to Clean the Straw

Narrow spaces are always the hardest to clean, so straws can be especially difficult to rid of contaminants. Wash with water and dish soap, making sure that the water is getting through the whole straw. If this isn’t sufficient, use a straw brush! All BrüMate straws come with a straw cleaning brush and a pouch to keep them in. Get yours here!

How to Deep Clean Your Tumbler

Sometimes a standard wash isn’t enough. Maybe you left your tumbler in the hot car with liquid still in it or it simply hasn’t been cleaned in a while. Even if you keep your tumbler in tip top shape it’s good to give it a deep clean every other month.

A tried and true method for deep cleaning is washing with baking soda and vinegar. Add a tablespoon of baking soda and a splash of vinegar in the bottom of the tumbler. When the mixture starts to bubble, set it aside for a moment until the bubbling settles down.

Once the foaming stops, close your tumbler with the lid and shake to coat the inside with the cleaning mixture. You can then pour the baking soda and vinegar out and give the tumbler and lid a good rinse.

After you’ve rinsed, take the pieces of your tumbler apart and give it a standard clean with dish soap and water as laid out in the section above.

Another great way to deep clean your tumblers is with the VooBrü cleaning tablets. These tablets remove the toughest of stains from your tumblers with our patent-pending formula. Use these tablets to help your tumbler look good as new!

What NOT to do When Cleaning Your Tumbler

While we’ve given you several examples of how you should clean, there are a few common cleaning methods that are not suitable for cleaning tumblers.

  • Do not use bleach - Bleach breaks down the chromium oxide inside your tumbler. Chromium oxide is what makes stainless steel stainless and without it your tumbler will rust over time.
  • Do not use a metal brush or steel wool - Abrasive metals will create scratches in your tumbler that will attract contaminants that become difficult to clean out. Instead stick to the BrüMate scrub brush!
  • Do not microwave your tumbler - BrüMate tumblers are made of stainless steel which should never be put in the microwave. Metals will deflect microwaves back at the microwave itself, dealing serious damage to your appliance.
