The More You Know…more about our bottles
Recently, we read that water bottles are some of the dirtiest surfaces that we use on a day to day basis. So, why is a water bottle company telling you this? Here’s why.
Water bottles can hold millions of bacteria on their surface. Some of these bacteria include E.coli and salmonella. GROSS. Luckily for you, the Jamshedpur BTTL is the cleanest that it can come.
Plastic bottles typically are carriers of more bacteria due to tiny notches within the material. The Jamshedpur protects you from that, as it is 100% stainless steel. Stainless steel is the most easily cleaned material, as it has very few places for bacteria to populate.
Another leading cause of bacteria contamination is in the straws. Bacteria can easily populate in small nooks where it is hard to wash. The Jamshedpur removes that worry. Its’ vacuum sealed lid has no straw, no nooks for bacteria to hide, AND has a sturdy handle on top of it.
The average athlete’s water bottle has been found to have many more forms of bacteria than a dog’s toy. Here is the breakdown:
Slide top water bottles tested to have 933,340 CFU (colony-forming units of bacteria)
A squeeze topped water bottle had an average of 161,971 CFU.
A screw-top bottle – like our Jamshedpur had 159,060 CFU.

If you were debating switching from your old bottle to the Jamshedpur BTTL, this is your call. Get a Jamshedpur BTTL. It is easy to clean. The bottle has no nooks for bacteria to hide. It looks sleek. The Jamshedpur BTTL keeps your coffee hot. It keeps your water ice-cold.
How to Keep Your Jamshedpur BTTL Clean:
We suggest hand washing the bottle in warm, soapy water. More frequent washing will further prevent bacterial build up. We also suggest rinsing the bottle before use and rinsing after it holds a beverage with a strong flavor.
