Waterwise Wednesday: Remember to Rinse Reusables

Just a friendly reminder to wash re-usable supplies to keep them safe and healthy.

– Water bottles should be washed daily inside and out with hot water and dish soap. Remember to wash the jar lip and lid too. Dry thoroughly or air dry to prevent bacteria growth.

– Lunch containers should also be washed daily. Remember to wash the lunch box or sack weekly as they can become easily contaminated with food and liquid. And yes, most foam/softsided lunch sacks can be machine washed and line dried.

– Launder Reusable Grocery Sacks especially after toting meats or other packages which may leak or condensate. Simply machine wash and dry.

– Handbags, Backpacks and Totes get set on a variety of surfaces including floors. Launder regularly to wash out the grime.
