Montii Care instructions
ARE MONTIICO BOTTLES SUITABLE FOR HOT DRINKS?
All of our bottles are double-walled, vacuum insulated (also known as thermally insulated), meaning they are suitable for hot and cold drinks – perfect for year round use. The wide mouth opening does mean you need to be EXTRA careful with hot liquids.
MontiiCo bottles provide 12 hours of warming. Some tips to get max warming:
Pre warm the bottle just prior to use with boiling water. Attach lid and let stand for 10 minutes, then empty
After pre warming, fill your bottle, and replace lid for maximum insulation efficiency
Keep lid in place as much as possible to keep your beverage warm
WARNING: Always exercise caution with hot beverages to avoid burns and scalds. Wide mouth bottles are NOT recommended for use to serve hot beverages to children.
HOW DO I WASH MY MONTIICO BOTTLES AND CUPS?
Wash and rinse bottle thoroughly before first use, and after each use. Hand washing is recommended for best results. Putting your bottle in the dishwasher may dull the colour, damage the finish and void your warranty.
Bamboo is a renewable natural product, there will always be natural variations in colour, tone and grain ensuring no two MontiiCo bottle lids look exactly the same.
NEVER put the bamboo lid in the dishwasher. Putting your bamboo lid in the dishwasher WILL damage the finish and void your warranty. Hand wash only and always air dry thoroughly.
HOW DO I STORE MY MONTIICO BOTTLES AND CUPS?
Always store your MontiiCo bottles and cups empty, and completely dry inside. We recommend storing your empty bottles without the lid affixed.
DO I HAVE RUST STAINS ON MY BOTTLE?
All MontiiCo products are made from 18/8 food-grade stainless steel which is safe, durable and BPA-free. The food-grade stainless steel in a MontiiCo is highly rust resistant. If your bottle appears to have rusted, it's probably just a mark left behind from the electropolishing process, which smooths the surface of the metal and makes it shiny. Sometimes electrolytes left on the surface turn a rust colour, but it's harmless.
To remove residue, soak your bottle or cup overnight with hot water and baking soda or white vinegar. Follow the soak with a good scrub using a bottle brush or a scouring pad, combined with a wooden spoon or other kitchen utensil for leverage. Please give this suggestion a shot and let us know how the cleaning goes. Remember, scrubbing is key.
