Regular maintenance of your SodaStream bottles is always recommended. Even if you take care of it enough, you can still experience a buildup of unwanted residue and SodaStream bottle mold towards the bottom of your bottle, where the base of the bottle is connected to the rest.
Unfortunately, SodaStream doesn’t make bottles with water 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 to glue it back together once you’re done cleaning the bottle with water.
This method should only be used if you desperately need to clean the area where the base meets the rest of the cup!
I have five steps to share that will remove the bottom, so stick with me.
Make sure the cylinder is tight enough and retighten it if necessary by twisting it to the right.
If you’re still not getting a range of bubbles and don’t hear a sputtering sound when you press the carbonation button, you may be out of gas.
What Happens If You Put A SodaStream Bottle In The Dishwasher?
SodaStream bottles made by SodaStream 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, primarily because they are made of weaker plastic.
If you happen to run your plastic SodaStream bottle through the dishwasher, it will likely 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 beverages as effectively as it’s supposed to, thus ruining your bottle. It may also result in a bottle stuck in SodaStream.
Since most SodaStream bottles are not dishwasher safe today, users are forced to clean them by hand and with a bottle brush.
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!
Remember that carbonating reusable water bottles have upto 2-year warranty before they need to be replaced, and Aqua Fizz™, Crystal™, and Penguin™ glass carafes may be used indefinitely, provided they remain free from cracks or other damage, or until the expiration date.
BPA-free stainless steel water bottles last for about two years before showing signs of wear and tear, and BPA-free plastic water bottles can only last up to 2 years. The lifespan of BPA-free water bottles can depend on the materials used to make them.
