There aren’t many home devices that carry a long-standing cultural appeal, coolness, and convenience than a SodaStream soda maker.
If you have a SodaStream, it’s likely that you use it a lot, or at least pretty often. For this reason, your SodaStream bottles may tend to get ‘dirty’ pretty quick, from a buildup of unwanted stains, odors and bacteria.
SodaStream bottles are used directly with the machine, so they’re constantly being screwed into the machine and experiencing concentrated bursts of CO2 at a consistent rate.
Regular maintenance of your SodaStream bottles is always recommended. Even if you take care of it enough, you can still experience a build-up of unwanted residue towards the bottom of your bottle, where the base of the bottle is connected to the rest.
Being able to remove this base would be very convenient in order to give the bottle a proper cleaning, sometimes.
Unfortunately, SodaStream doesn’t make bottles that allow the base to come directly off.
It can be difficult trying to remove them but the good news is, there’s a way to remove the bottom base, but you’ll need some glue at hand in order to be able to glue it back together once you’re done cleaning the bottle.
This method should only be used if you desperately need to clean the area where the base meets the rest of the cup!

Instructions To Remove Bottom From SodaStream Bottle
As mentioned, even if you regularly clean out your SodaStream bottles, they can still experience a buildup of residue towards the bottom and around the area where the bottom is connected to the rest.
SodaStream bottles are always being used, whether it’s in the beverage creation process when it’s being used to drink out of, and when they’re being cleaned.
So here we go – How To Remove Bottom Of A SodaStream Bottle
The buildup of residue and odors can be deterred in a number of ways, but after a while, it may take a bit of extra effort to get that residue out if your bottles have been used consistently for a while.
If this is the case for you then this is
How To Remove Bottom Of A SodaStream Bottle in 5 steps;
Get some hot water in a bowl or other container, and soak the bottom of your SodaStream bottle in the hot water for 1 ½ – 3 minutes.
The hot water will loosen up the glue and other material holding the base to your bottle.
When it’s ready, gently pull off the bottom, then scrape away any glue that shows itself.
Properly and thoroughly clean the area(s) that need to be cleaned with warm water and soap. Lemon juice can also be used in the mix.
When it’s dry, re-glue the bottom with hot glue, and seal the perimeter.
Let it dry overnight to ensure total dryness.
This can look a bit tricky, but it can be done rather easily if the bottom is heated up enough for the existing glue to loosen up.
You don’t always have to go to the full extent, but at least giving them some bit of clean after each use would definitely help out the bottles, and you, a lot. After each use, you should be giving each bottle a rinse with warm soap and water.
Using soap and water won’t cut it every time. After every few washes, it would be recommended to clean out your bottles with a cleaning tablet, or with some lemon juice.
Cleaning tablets are made by SodaStream themselves, but there is also an abundant amount of other cleaning tablets you can use, as well. Lemon juice is famously known to act as an antibacterial, and works very well at removing odors and stains.
As a rule of thumb, always wash your SodaStream bottles with at least some warm water and soap after every single use, especially if you use soda syrup often in your bottles.
Syrup mix can lead to an excess of deposited materials that build up as residue.
What Happens If You Put A SodaStream Bottle In The Dishwasher?
Nowadays, there are SodaStream bottles made by SodaStream that are safe for the dishwasher.
These are the glass / BPA-Free plastic bottle products that can be purchased online or in stores. If the SodaStream bottle you are interested in is dishwasher-safe, this feature will always be labeled.
However, most of the older SodaStream bottles that many people still use today are not safe for the dishwasher, mostly due to the fact that they are made of weaker plastic.
If you happen to run your plastic SodaStream bottle through the dishwasher, it’s likely that it will get ruined.
The bottle will be ruined by becoming deformed from the constant heat the bottle is experiencing. If your bottle becomes deformed, it will not be able to hold the carbonation as effectively as it’s supposed to, thus ruining your bottle.
Since most SodaStream bottles in use today are not dishwasher safe, users are forced to clean them by hand, and with brushes.
SodaStream bottles are famously annoying to clean, and not being able to use a lot of them in dishwashers is a big reason that this is so.
Not being able to clean your bottles in a dishwasher may be irritating, but don’t let this deter you from regularly cleaning out your bottles after each use!
All of the bottles made by SodaStream are now BPA-free.
BPA is short for a chemical named Bisphenol-A, which is a harmful plasticizer that has commonly been used in plastic items in the past.
Even though BPA has been convenient to make common plastic items with in the past, it’s been discovered that it can actually have some rather harmful side effects, when constantly exposed to the chemical.
