UV Water Bottle: The Bottle that Cleans Itself!
By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): Everyone knows that bottles and tumblers are a staple of any SWAG lineup. They’re affordable, obviously incredibly useful, provide a great imprint area for memorable branding, and are normally a welcomed addition to everybody’s cabinets. But from a “memorable” perspective? The recipients may remember your logo (if you use great designers like the ones we have at SOBO) but the chances are they won’t think twice about the actual product.
And we’ll be honest: it’s difficult to put a new spin on such a tried and true item. But, knowing the great value they provide, our clients still insist upon them despite our steering to other more original options. All this is to say – SOBO is always on the lookout for any updates that will excite our clients and leave a lasting impression.
Luckily, our recent trip to the trade show in Las Vegas introduced us (and, judging by how busy their booth was, the world at large) to a product that will excite even the most jaded among us: a UV-powered Water Bottle.
If you own a reusable water bottle (and, lets face it, most everyone does by now) then you know they’re plagued by one simple problem- they’re nearly impossible to sanitize, as if the manufacturers don’t want you to clean them, ever, for some twisted reason… Narrow openings, awkward shapes – you can only hope that your special “bottle brush” reaches all the nooks and crannies and that you’re not drinking days old bacteria.
Now imagine never having to clean your reusable bottle again. Yeah, we’re excited too! Let’s take a look at what they are and how they work.
What is a UV Water Bottle and How Does it Work?
While some water bottles have a built in filter for things like dirt, a self-cleaning UV-powered water bottle uses technology to kill viruses, bacteria, and other waterborne microbes that can eventually make you sick. A light attached to the under side of the cap or bottom of the bottle will shine UV rays through the bottle, and these UV rays then destroy that harmful bacteria and other micro-organisms by attacking their DNA, effectively sterilizing the water and interior surface of the bottle. Simply shine the light and poof! You’ve got a clean water bottle.
Not only is the process that easy, but it’s also extremely effective: most UV bottles on the market kill upwards of 99.9% of disease-causing microbes. Know what that means? No more struggling with a sponge or using a filthy “bottle brush” and hoping that you’ve cleaned it thoroughly! You’ll know it’s clean – it’s science.
Better yet (and honestly this may be the most important aspect to a lot of people), the UV process leaves the water taste and odor-free. You’re not using any chemicals, so there won’t be any leftover soapy taste and no wear on the inside of the bottle; and in case that wasn’t good enough, the bottles are all made with the same feature we’ve all come to love from any name brand water bottle – they’ll keep your hot liquids hot and your cold liquids cold.
