FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: HOW PUNCTURE PROOF IS THE BUBI BOTTLE?
In a unique field test, a 9-foot alligator chomped on our reusable bottle for 10 minutes. It was our first experience! Result? It took a while to get the bottle away from the gator, but it had no punctures. So if you are not in a fight with a gator, we believe the Bubi water bottle will handle your gym or book bag well.
We also shot the Bubi water bottle with a 9mm, and well the bullet went through the bottle, which is extreme, but it did not leak until squeezed.
Q: HOW TO USE & CLEAN THE BUBI BOTTLE?
A: The bottle is silicone, not plastic, and with care will not retain odors. There are a few things you can do to keep your Bubi bottle fresh:
1. Use filtered water. Unfiltered water has bacteria, and over a short time will cause a stale odor in the water.
2. Precondition the reusable water bottle before first use by adding boiling soapy water, sloshing it around, and rinsing thoroughly again with hot boiling water. Be sure to rinse thoroughly; soap has a scent.
3. Washing suggestions: It is recommended to wash all the bottles often because bacteria is introduced to filtered water once you drink from any bottle. Here are three experience methods to clean the Bubi bottle.
1. Hand wash –
Add hot soapy water slosh and rinse.
2. Dishwasher –
Disassemble the bottle and place in the top or bottom rack, place the cap assembly in the silverware tray. Hand wash the carabiner.
3. Thorough cleaning –
Disassemble the bottle and turn your Bübi water bottle inside out to scrub the inside from the outside. Follow these experience steps, add soapy water, slosh around and push the bottom through the top. Reverse the process when finished. Watch this video for a demonstration.
Q: CAN I FREEZE THE BÜBI BOTTLE?
A: Yes. Fill the Bübi bottle with filtered water, screw on the cap, and place in the freezer. The reusable bottle will expand as it freezes and returns to its shape while thawing. The silicone Bubi material acts as an insulator while melting and will retain the cold longer than standard single wall bottles.
Use as a cold compress, freezer pack, half fill the bottle and squeeze out the air, let it freeze. In like manner, the compressed shape will allow you to use as a cold compress for headaches, wrists, or ankles.
Also, use as an ice pack. All you need to do is freeze a silicone water bottle and place in a picnic basket, lunch box, or backpack to keep food cold for the day.
Please share your ideas with us as well.
Q: CAN I ADD HOT WATER OR COFFEE SAFELY?
A: Yes. The Bübi bottle made high-grade silicone and thoroughly enjoys hot liquids. The bottle can also be used as a soothing warm compress pillow when flying, camping, or that long car ride. Even fitting for cramps, half fill the bottle with your hot beverage and squeeze out the air.
Have a sore back, cramps, or achy muscles. The Bubi bottle will help sooth the discomfort on the road or at home.
Q: WILL THE BÜBI BOTTLE MELT OVER A FIRE?
A: No, it will not melt. The Bübi bottle is made from high-grade silicone and can go over a campfire, sterno, or on a stove. In the same way, the bottle is resistant up to 500F.

The Bubi water bottle is the only bottle allowed to place over a fire. It makes possible by high-grande silicone and a special patented cap assembly. Should your bottle turn black from soot, don’t be concerned, it will wash off the bottle. By the same token, we tasted the silicone water bottle by many experiences, and reported to take 10-12 minutes to get the water boiling.

Note: Remove the cap assembly, the bottle is resistant the cap assembly is not. In addition, remove the bottle with caution, it will be extremely hot. Use the carabiner to hang the bottle over the campfire carabiner.
Q: HOW TO SEAL THE BÜBI BOTTLE PROPERLY?
A: The Bubi bottle has been carefully designed to close tightly. The cap assembly is designed with a double seal technology, to prevent leaking even if run over by a truck.
The patented cap assembly has three parts, thread, mouthpiece, and cap. Assemble your bottle in this order.
