|Looking for a waterbottle that doesn't "flavor" the water. Any suggestions?|

|I've been known to store canteens, water bottles, and hydration flasks with a teaspoon of full-strength booze in them. Vodka would probably not add a taste. Brandy does, but it is a taste I like.
In principle, the right grade of polyethylene should NOT add a taste.

|I use Specialized bottles (because I like the attached caps--I lose the loose kind). I rinse and let them dry after every use, wash with detergent maybe once a week or so, and I've never tasted anything.|

|a) fill water bottle 3/4 full with clear vinegar.
b) add water to fill to the rim.
c) close spout and shake bottle for 5 seconds.
d) open spout and let bottle set for 24 HOURS.
e) pour out, and rinse once.
I guarantee, there will not be a vinegar or plastic smell or taste.....the water will taste as though it came from a clean glass.

|Your water will actually taste clean and sweet.
I get good results using 1/3 to 1/2 parts white vinegar and letting it stand overnight.

|... I tried that stuff in a polyethylene canteen once and could taste it for two years. What finally covered the taste was brandy.|
