One of the many things that I'm OCD about is a good water bottle. I don't like to purchase bottled water as a rule because the filtered tap water from my house tastes the best to me. But, I don't want a plastic that has any smell or harmful chemical. I had some of these water bottles, which I used for 8 years until I lost two of them.. the last one left is still in great shape and dishwasher safe. When I found this updated version of the same Rubbermaid 32 oz. water bottle at my local Albertson's I was thrilled. I love that it has a wide mouth for easy cleaning, in case I put milk or juice inside. It's dishwasher safe and the lid cleans easily. I don't like lids with straws and parts that are easily lost and not easily cleaned.
I know you're laughing, but just think how many years of happiness I may potentially get out of these bottles. Hooray!
