Yes they are!

Plastic water bottles are only for one time use. But in a survival situation it's fair game. You just have to make sure to wash the bottle very well. Some people might notice that if you open a bottle of water to drink (I'm talking about just a 500ml or what ever) in about 24 hours or so ( plus or minus some hours) after opening it back up and then smell into the bottle it will smell nasty. If you ever find yourself in a survival situation, throw some charcoal into the bottle. It will prevent bad bacteria from giving you an upset stomach or perhaps even worse, or even help with an upset stomach.

They do. The original Ozark Trail is a pre lawsuit yeti design. It’s shaped differently now. They changed last summer.

Bah!

I used the same Aquafina water bottle for a month or more on the farm, filling it up from the irrigation wells. never washed it, never had a problem.

I'm not saying that'll you'll get sick after using it after 24 hours, I'm just saying that it will smell really bad in most cases. The info I gave was for long term emergency use. But Aquafina is terrible, drinking straight Whisky is water compared to Aquafina Chuckle

I drink my coffee out of a Yeti mug. I've been using it for a couple of years. I clean the cup but don't always remove the O-Ring seal. When I do, I find nothing remarkable beneith it. I put pretty hot black coffee in it and seal the mug during any traveling from the pot to where I'm working. I often put the lid on the mug to keep the coffee hot. I would imagine the high temp liquid kills anything that might try to grow beneith the O-Ring.

Got me. No trouble so far. Wash your stuff and that should solve any bio issues.

My mug looks like this..

I use the dishwasher like the dude did ~ haven't noticed a lot of grunge, but I'mma take a hard look at 'em in the future.  

The bleach thing is prolly best.   Yeah3

I'm not sure the rubber O-Ring or plastic lid will like bleach. You might use full strength white vinegar on the plastic and O-Ring, plus really hot water. Bleach is pretty caustic stuff.

Household bleach is usually described as sodium hypochlorite, but most people do not realize that it is also a strong solution of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda). This is why it is good at dealing with grease, because the NaOH reacts with many organic compounds to make soap which can then be washed away. Because of this it is corrosive (i.e. weakens and ultimately degrades) materials including aluminum, polyester and (for long exposure) nylon. I would say that polyester is the plastic which is likely to dissolve most quickly.

Mrs. Sparks is a germa-phobe. She has a fit if I leave a 3M dish scrubber on the sink in the kitchen. The kind with a green scrubby backing and a yellow sponge on the other side. I always put soap on it so there cannot be any bacteria. She freaks out and puts them in the dishwasher. So to combat this I bought a huge aka yuge supply of these. A giant 36 pack. Every time it is in the dishwasher and I want one, I open a new one. She goes wild! We also have problems with which direction the toilet paper is supposed to come off the roll. But we are working on these issues and have a unilateral treaty so there are no hostilities. These have been a subject of debate for 10 years.
