Did you read at news.com.au recently about people starting to notice a horrible side effect suspected of having bad implications on their health caused by their reusable travel cups? The problem is the lids, which are not usually cleaned as well as they should be.

We pop a KeepCup in our Kit, either the Original/Brew or the Original Clear Edition. Neither of these have a rubber seal where there can be a build up of  black gunk lurking behind it.

For washing KeepCup recommend that you be gentle – don’t use abrasive materials or cloths when cleaning. For everyday use a quick rinse will do it – but recommend a thorough clean once a week. Keeping your KeepCup clean makes the coffee experience great for you, and your barista – make sure you hand over a clean cup. The lids, plugs, silicone bands and cup components are durable, and designed to be easy to care for. All are dishwasher safe on the top shelf.

Take extra care with the clear plastic Tritan is dishwasher safe, but grease or oil in the dishwasher may cause clouding. Handwash your Clear Tritan Cup to maintain clarity.
