Nalgene bottles are convenient to carry and use, but it is important that they are cleaned after a few uses. You can wash these bottles with dish soap or put them in the dishwasher. If you have a sticky residue or strange smells coming out of the bottle, a simple baking soda solution will help.
All our bottles are dishwasher safe. We recommend placing them on the top rack and away from heating elements. You can also wash it by hand.
You put stickers on your Nalgene to let others know what you stand for. It’s like a portable Facebook profile when you’re on the go or at the gym and you know it.
How to Protect Stickers on Water Bottles: When you go to the trouble of decorating your water bottle with stickers, you want to protect them. Only hand wash your bottle. Do not clean your bottle in the dishwasher, even if it is dishwasher safe.
You can use waterproof decals/stickers in more places (e.g. water bottles) and as a bonus, the ink won’t fade as quickly either. I liked the idea of making sealed stickers, but figured you needed expensive paper or a fancy machine.
Whether you’re using your water bottle to stay hydrated on the go or as a Nalgene protein shaker at the gym, it may have taken on a slightly stale stench. It happens when water has been left in the bottle for too long.
Items you will need
Wash and dry it completely. Cover the sides with a bumper sticker or a school sticker. Create a design or artistic graffiti with acrylic or glass paint (depending on whether you prefer an opaque or translucent finish). Use the medium to add a motif around the black cap as well.
The 32 oz Nalgene Wide Mouth has been our top choice for years, and with good reason. We think their durability, price and ease of use make them the best all-round bottle for camping, day hikes, daily commuting and life, as well as part of a backpacking gear.
All my Nalgenes have my name engraved right on the front under the Nalgene logo. You can engrave what you want on the front and then make a marker over it. The marker may rub off on the smooth plastic, but not so much on the engraving.
Decals are washable, the easiest way to clean a vinyl decal is to wipe the surface with a damp cloth or alternatively they can be hand washed.
Many companies claim to have dishwasher safe vinyl stickers, but just to be sure, I would stick with hand washing your Hydro Flasks unless you know they are definitely dishwasher safe.
Vinyl stickers are waterproof, not waterproof. All sticker styles: Matte, Glossy and Clear have the same water resistance.
A: Yes, vinyl stickers are dishwasher safe and can even be put in the microwave!
Go classic and decorate your Hydro Flask with stickers
Stickers are probably the easiest and most common way to customize your Hydro Flask. I like to get mine from local craft fairs and cons, but you can also order them from sites like Amazon or Redbubble.
