What is the lifespan of a bottle?
A similar thread was created but there wasnt a concrete answer. How long can you go on a bottle with the dovpo? Cheers

For 13 bucks, it should last quite some time. ...


I'm sure someone will soon chime in

It depends how sensitive you are to staining/colour changes. With most silicone squonk bottles, they'll rotate so finger oils, etc., get more-or-less evenly distributed around the bottle. The topside's bottle-in-a-can sits in one orientation, so everything happens in one spot. That can lead to them being perfectly serviceable but looking a little grungy.

You can spin the bottle if you unscrew the casing.

Daily use - 1.5-2 month*

*at least for me.
Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow.

Mine has last for months. I rinse it good. First in scolding water, then in cold, and let it dry for 2-3 days.

Iguess ive had my single cell topside for 6 months, still havent used the second bottle yet. I soak my bottles in a light bleach solution to keep them pretty. Just rinse them well and remove all metal as the bleach will remove plating quite quickly. Same way we clean our water coolers at work, been doing it forever, it will not harm the average person.

Sounds reasonable.

Not the entire bottle of chlorine, Harry.
