Water Bottle Notes:
The products below have been expressly chosen because I have tested countless examples from each of these brands and they have consistently tested Lead-free in all components (for the types of water bottles shown for that brand.)
- Hydroflask is the only brand of insulated stainless bottle that I found that consistently does not have Leaded sealing dots.
- For Kleen Kanteen I only recommend the non-insulated bottles as I have not done enough destructive testing of their insulated bottles to make a definitive Lead-free determination.
- With stainless and aluminum bottles I recommend using them for water only (not tea, coffee, juice or other potentially acidic beverages) and rinsing them out and changing the water daily). If you use your bottle for beverages other than water, I suggest you choose glass.
