Important Cleaning Information!

If it’s been more than 4-6 months since you cleaned your 5-gallon bottle, water cooler, crock or dispenser – IT’S TIME!

Unplug your unit (if you have a cooler), drain your dispenser, remove any spigots, use a small bottle cleaner or Q-tip, dip it in distilled white vinegar, and clean the port. Also clean the spigot, and reinstall it.

If you have a cooler, try to take apart the top part giving you access to the reservoir. Use a wet cloth inside your dispenser with about 1/2 cup of Distilled White Vinegar and clean the unit. You will need about 1-2 gallons of water to wash the vinegar out of the dispenser. Your unit is now clean and ready to go for another 6 months!

The nice thing about Vinegar vs. Clorox is… if you don’t get it all out of your dispenser, it won’t hurt you!

For those of you who have 2 or 3 gallon refrigerators, you may need to clean every 3-4 months as odors from the fridge get absorbed into the dispenser because the lid is loosened.

For your bottles, put 1/2 cup of vinegar in the bottle and a little bit of water and swish around the entire bottle. Use a baby bottle washer to clean the inside top of your bottle. Dump the vinegar out and rinse the bottle 2-3 times to get all the vinegar out. OR you can bring your bottle to the shop and we will wash it for you for $1.00 and give you a new cap!

We recommend wiping down the top of your bottle before flipping it onto your crock or cooler. Dust and debris can build up on top of the bottle, much like it does on our furniture. And when you put it on your dispenser, all those items go right into your cooler and your water. Just a wet cloth across the top of the bottle is all that is needed!
