Frequently asked questions about the bubi bottle
The revolutionary, multifunctional bübi bottle is made of medical-grade silicone and can safely handle much more than ordinary water bottles: coffee, tea, medical supplies etc.
Q: Is bübi bottle puncture-resistant?
A: In a unique field test recently, we had an alligator chomp on one of our bübi bottles for 10 minutes. Result? No punctures. So if you are not in a fight with a gator, we believe the bübi bottle will handle your gym or book bag well.
Q: Will bübi bottle retain odors?
A: The bottle is silicone, not plastic, and with care with not retain odors. There are a few things you can do to keep your bübi bottle fresh:
1. Use filtered water. Unfiltered water has bacteria, and over a short time will cause a stale odor.
2. Precondition the bottle before first use by adding boiling hot soapy water, sloshing it around, and rinsing thoroughly again with hot boiling water.
3. Washing suggestions: wash promptly, do not use bleach, baking soda etc.
4. You can also turn your bubi bottle inside out to scrub the inside from the outside. Simply disassemble the cap assembly including the carabiner, add soapy water, slosh around and push the bottom through the top to wash the inside from the outside. Reverse the process when finished.

Q: Can I freeze the bübi bottle?
A: Yes. Simply fill the bübi bottle with filtered water, twist on the cap, and let it freeze solid. The bottle will expand as it freezes and return to its shape while thawing. The silicone bübi material acts as an insulator and will retain the cold longer than normal bottles, but not as long as a double-walled container. Use as a cold compress, freezer pack, or simply to keep water ice-cold for drinking later.
Q: Can I put boiling hot liquid in the bübi bottle?
A: Yes. This silicone is medical grade silicone and thoroughly enjoys hot boiling coffee. The bottle can also be used as a soothing hot compress pillow when flying, camping or that long car ride.
Q: Can I really heat my bübi bottle over a campfire?
A: Yes. Keep your hands at a safe distance from the flames. Take the cap assembly off the bubi bottle and use the steel ring to hang over the fire. It will take around 15 minutes, and the bottle will be hot to the touch.
Q: What about leaking?
A: The bübi bottle has been carefully designed to close tightly. However, if the internal retainer at the mouth of the bottle is not pushed into the neck of the bottle enough, there my be leakage. Make sure the inside retainer is 1/8" below the neck of the bottle; the exposed silicone is the seal. Watch the video below to learn more.
